    After a good laugh I checked the website. I guess they fixed it:

    "All in all an uncompromising tool that will never let you down - whatever the conditions. "


    6.5oz is really really heavy for a 3.11 inch folder. But the blade itself is pretty thick. I might just wait and pray for a Minos Lite (yeah right, I'll likely end up picking this one up anyways).

    Called BladeHQ today to see if they had more info; was a dead end. No ETA (even the year), no other pics, no price, nothing...
    Oh well, this might be a good thing for my wallet.

    If something is new in the German catalog, we will see it later half of the same year. This one should be stateside in the fall, I would think.

    Terry, any updates about the Minos? Have we gotten any closer towards a estimated release date?
    Long live the weasels!

    What a really nice folder!

  8. I haven't loved the look of a knife so much in a loooong time. Can't wait for this one.

    Excellent video.

    That's one thick pocketclip...it complements the overall design of the knife get nicely.

    I saw it on Bokers Facebook page today. I think its ready ship.

    It' s available already here in Germany(from Bökers website). If there' s one advantage for knife addicts like us living in Germany it' s the earlier availability of German-made knives
    That video is incredibly awesome, one of the best youtube videos I' ve ever seen on a knife!

    Yup, the entire new catalog is online on the German site and it includes several new Anso designs(ahem...SOLO)
    I' m not really a fan of the Minos II though. It' s still super heavy and I much prefer the very characteristic look of the original handle and blade finish.

    Let's throw in some pics of Bokers new Anso designs, the Solo



    And the Arctos:

    Long live the weasels!

    We used to play for silver now we play for life. And one's for sport, and one's for blood at the point of a knife...

    The first small batch of Minos hit the US yesterday. Will start shipping Monday. These are nice.
