Information from the Spyderco catalog on the web

"Who exactly is Jens Anso? He’s a talented Danish industrial designer and an up-and-coming knifemaker shaking up the industry who once said “If you don’t want to make your second knife, don’t make the first.” We’re thankful he’s been drawn to knifemaking because his designs are unique, fun, functional and making noise in the knife world. His Rock Lobster collaboration has a blade shape not defined by traditional knifemaker labels. Part Wharncliffe part knobby nosed, its thick tip eats up hard cuts and offers loads of personality.

Made from VG-10 stainless, it is full-flat ground and available PlainEdged. Handle is foliage green G-10 with enough texture to stop hand-slipping and has a nested LinerLock® with jimping at the lock release. Screw together handle construction allows the knife to be adjusted and easily cleaned. Tip-up/down right hand pocket clip." [1]
