Product Description

A Popular Mechanics article inspired Danish teenage Jens Anso to take a drill press and power tools to an old metal file and make his first knife.  When Gretzky slapped his first puck or Jordan tried out for the junior-high basketball team, history was written as it was when years later, an older Jens started innovating and modernizing old school European knifemaking. Anso’s G-10 Zulu pioneers the process of chiseling out a G-10 handle scale to create a texture much like a topographical map.  The peaks and ridges keep the knife firmly embraced in a gripping hand while offering a novel appearance.  The handle houses a Michael Walker LinerLock® and is constructed using adjustable screws.  A two-way: tip-up/tip-down right-hand clip is hourglass shaped lessening wear and abrasion in a pant’s pocket. Made with Crucible Steel’s CPM-S30V, the Scimitar- shaped blade has a large radius hollow grind and a tapered spine-swedge, stretching from the blade’s tip along the spine to the enlarged Spyderco Round Hole. Spyderco’s second collaboration with Mr. Anso represents his modern interpretation of high-performance folder making with a time-honored reputation for Spyderco’s quality.

Excellent quality, construction and steel. The handle does create hotspots after extended periods of use, especially along the edges. The carved texture is great but limited due to the large flat spots to accommodate the clip. It is a little fat for an EDC but the smoothness of the opening/closing action is second to none and the quality of the steel does not go unnoticed. I love the shape of the blade; excellent slicer and theoversized spydy-hole is great! This knife has a lot of personality and I'm very happy to have it in my collection however this is not a "first knife" or "the only knife you need". I keep it at home as its too expensive to lose and there are better EDCs but it still gets plenty of use!

I purchased my new Jens Anso Zulu knife along with another Spyderco (a camo smallfly) from another site because they had both knives on sale (the Zulu sale price was about the same as Amazon). When I bought both knives I originally thought I'd like the smallfly better between the two but I quickly discovered I was wrong. The smallfly is a well made, cool knife but the Zulu is simply amazing! The 'carved' G-10 handle feels great and is very interesting to look at. Eventhough I prefer American made Spyderco's (again, like the smallfly) the fit and finish on this Taichung Taiwan made knife is perfect - no blade play whatsoever & it's perfectly centered. I love the fact that the blade is made of high quality CPM S30V steel and I really dig the blade shape. I decided to move the right hand clip from the standard tip up configuartion to tip down which I perfer. After carrying my Zulu for a few days I have decided to include it in my daily rotation which is big considering I carry awsome (read expensive) knives such as Para-Military 2, Ti-Military, Benchmade Infidel, ZT 0561, Dendra Tiger Jump...

Absolutely beautiful. This knife has great curves making it as beautiful as it is ergonomic and functional. This is Anso at his finest.
