KnifeNews: Vosteed Ankylo is Debut Platform for Patented Vanchor Lock

Vosteed brought their newest project to Blade Show Texas last weekend, a model called the Ankylo. Not only is it a new design, the Ankylo is also the debut platform for a patented lock mechanism Vosteed calls the Vanchor.

From a purely visual perspective, the Ankylo has similar lines to previous Vosteed designs, but it still carves out a visual identity of its own. Utility-wise, you’ve got a user built around a modified wharncliffe blade shape, mid-sized and ready for the full spread of daily chores. Too, there’s a trio of opening options on offer: a front flipper, back flipper, opening oval – and somehow, even with all this apparatus, the blade manages to look uncluttered.

I have known about this one for a little while.  I really like it and I think the frag pattern scales are perfect in this instance. The new lock looks interesting, of course it isn’t the first in the style, but different enough to qualify for its own patent. Cool knife.  I think Vosteed has a good one here.
