    Alright this one truly looks sick.Its another German made collab...

    Hopefully they fixed the blade play/lock-up issues that seem to plague their German Anso knives.

    This knife is just begging for a rainbow anodizing job( well in my opinion at-least)

    Overall length: 7.4"
    Blade length: 3.3"
    Weight: 6.5 oz
    Blade thickness: 5.0 mm
    Blade Material: N690BO
    Handle Material: Titanium

    110629.jpg

    Looks to be a production version of his Outbreak knife model V.279-47

    From Boker's Website:

    A new dimension of titanium frame lock enrich our program. Designed by Jens Anso at maximum stability through the Minos confident with solid, 4 mm thick titanium plates and a 5 mm thick blade N690BO. To underscore this massive construction clip, spacer and thumb button can also be milled from solid titanium. For any torsion wirksamst under control to prevent additional fittings have been incorporated into the shells, which effectively eliminates any possible weak point. If you are looking for a stable pocket knife: here you have found it. The deep cutouts offer excellent grip, the safe operation guaranteed. The bulbous blade offers a lot of cutting line and, with its slight hollow grind for excellent cutting properties. Whether outdoors, everyday, work, or hunting - with Minos, they are always prepared. The special blade finish blends beautifully with the anodized titanium handle and provides the most singular appearance. Up to the challenge, the Minos, an uncompromising tool that lets you down in any situation.Available from May 2012.

    Love those handles, Im quite pleased with the designs that Boker has been coming out with recently, really great stuff.

    Im gaining a greater liking for Anso's knives, yet to grab one though because of the QC issues that seem to plague them.

    Just ran across this. Now that's more like it! Producing a truly anso-esque production knife wouldn't be complete without some patterns on that Ti. Now that's an anso design I'm in for. :thumbup:

    That is sweet. I love my 67, and this one brings a nice change from the plain old G10 or flat Ti slabs. I will be in for this one!

    I was looking at other Boker knives in that price range and they seem to street out at around $220-$240.

    Hey that's the outbreak I won! Awesome now there's finally a name for my knife. It's the perfect Edc tons of cutting edge, thick ti handles and titanium pocket clip. To bad it doesn't have the spydie hole opener like my custom one :(

    That looks great!

    I think Boker is doing great with their collaboration knives. Its just too bad, that the Anso line have had so many qc issues. Ive been wanting a Haddock for over a year now, but all the tales of blade-play, etc. keep me away from it.

    EDIT: I recently got a secondhand framelock Haddock and it put my worries to shame. Its flawless and the lockup is perfect.

    Definitely looking into snagging up one of these, got the Albatros and I love the thing except for it's just a little too small for me to use, so it's just sitting in it's box. This Minos looks quite a bit larger, so I think I'll be upgrading if I can find this in stock anywhere.
