1 off Zetta open bid auction

Hey Guys,
 With this Zetta we wanted to up the game a bit increasing the complexity of the build and the difficulty of fit and finish, while still keeping the design subtle and refined. Somewhat ;)

The handle scales have been made of a tight pattern Timascus 
with inlays of blackened Zirconium. 

 We decided to take the concept a little further by adding a peekaboo inlay of niobium into the back of each  scale, these inlays are only visible from the back of the handle. The Niobium is anodized a very vibrant blue to contrast with the Timascus. 
The Zetta features an asymmetrical blade with a duplex grind on the right side and a dagger grind on the left.

We will sell this knife via open bid auction. To place a bid please email Lucas at brnlylotto@gmail.com 

Also if you would like to send your maximum bid, I am happy to auto increase in $100.00 increments until you have won or been out bid. This may be easier for some depending on location.

I will post occasional updates in a few different places.  You can check in the comments section of this post, my forum on the USN as well as the Facebook pages for both Jens and myself.

This should give everyone a way to keep track of the progress.

The auction will run until Wednesday July 31st at 8.00 PM EST

To avoid any last minute sniping the auction will run 5 mins after the last bid. 

We will cover the cost of shipping worldwide for the winning bidder.

Basic Specs:
Oal- 9.9
Blade- 3.9
Thickness- 5/32
Steel- Takefu, Super gold 2
Scales- Timascus
Inlays front- Zirconium
Inlays back – Niobium
This auction will start with no minimum bid.

Whether you are bidding or not, thank you for following the progress of this most recent build.

Your support is greatly appreciated.

 Have fun and good luck!

 Lucas and Jens

Anso/Brnly Zetta collaboration Lottery.

Alright guys,
For those of you that haven't seen it Jens and I have just finished our most recent collaboration, The "Zetta"
 For this one I flew back to Denmark to work in the Anso shop for the duration of the build.
We got pretty ambitious with this and it tested us thoroughly,  after some long nights we finished in time and I was on a plane the next morning. 
 Finally back home and Jens has sent me the finished photography so I'm ready to get this thing started.

For this project we each had a few concepts that we wanted to try, one that we shared was the desire to do a high end all metal folder. We also decided that we wanted to work in some color with out it being overpowering, and to try a new blade steel.
The construction method we chose gave us a number of surfaces and materials to work with while also pushing us to work through problems that we hadn't come across before. 

This is what collaborations are really about for me, pushing yourself, sharing techniques and problem solving.

The result this time, is the Zetta.

Thanks for your support, we hope you enjoy the knives :)
