Sometimes I like to share cool things from other makers. Jens Anso is a very famous knife maker from Denmark. As expected, his work is clean and elegant. At auction, his knives go for thousands of dollars. If you want to buy one, expect to fork over a lof of money on the secondary market, or wait...and wait (don't forget to wait). He's also designed knives for two of the largest knife manufacturers on earth, Spyderco and Boker. I'm impressed. Like me, Jens likes to dabble in other things as well.
I'd like to introduce you to his new titanium & carbon fiber credit card holder, which is currently live on Kickstarter and ending in 4 days on February 20th. (link to the KS campaign and video)!
Ah but where is it made? Jens makes most of his knives in his own shop, but this project is being contracted out to the same US company that waterjets all of my pocket clips. See, small world. In case you missed the first link to the Kickstarter campaign, here it is again! Even if you aren't interested yourself, please forward this on to someone that might. Us makers live by word of mouth. if you don't spread the word, we don't eat, so just take a second and click your mouse on one of those share buttons :)
If you want to check out his knife work, here is the link for his website and a photo below to wet your whistle. This is my favorite, and of course a one-off. I like how it arches its back like an angry shark when it's open. Sadly, I don't own it. Probably couldn't afford it either :)
