Yeah baby...it is 2007 and I have a strong feeling this will be a great year..!

Right about now I can celebrate my 5th aniversary as a full time maker, my 10th aniversary for selling my knives...that alone is quite cool....thanks to all you guys out there who makes this possible...!

So....what can you expect to see from the Anso shop...???

Well one of the major things is the "official" launch of the Testlab Outbreaks.....those of you who follow this forum would have noticed a thread a while ago with a sneak peak to the Outbreak idea....Over the holidays I have been designing a bunch of new folders.....some radical some more gentle...but all freaking cool if I may say so my self.....most of these which counts as high as 10 new folder and balisong designs will be launched during 2007. Most if not all will start their life as a Testlab Outbreak and then MAYBE with some changes be allowed into the group of standard models....I will be grinding on the first this week and will have a bunch done and ready for heattreat over the next month......if all goes as planned I will have the first ready to show of early February...stay tuned...!

Some of the the other stuff you will see from my shop is a few swords....I have moved alittle away from the Elvish inspiration in my first swords into the nordic and roman style....I expect to build at least different swords during 2007...at least one of which will be available at the Bladeshow...!!

Which reminds me that this year I will attend more shows than ever.....I will first attend the Bladeshow 2007, then the Scandinavian Knifemakers Guildshow in Stockholm and finally the Paris show in September....I love preparing for shows and for those of you that will be able to see me at either of the shows prepare for a threat :)

I have several other ideas brewing that will all come to life in 2007.....different ways of transporting/storing your favorite Anso Knife.....I will have new ways to mark my knives which will include my logo and the shop will expand both regarding machines/tools and size....!

I probably left out a few things I meant to write here but when I figure it out I wil add to this post! :)

last but not least I wish you all a happy and prosperous new year...!

See ya :)

Hi Jens!! This is TheKnifeCollector, by the way.
I am excited to see your new stuff for '07!! I have been following your blog, and equally excited about your new knives! I am also hoping that I CAN buy one of your knives at Blade this year; instead of just a tee shirt & hat.

Hi Jens!!

Happy New Year to you. I can't wait to get my KAOS and my fixed blade from your last batch of fixed blades. Hope to see you @ BLADE 2007!
