    VANCHOR LOCK

    The Ankylo is our first knife design featuring the innovative Vanchor lock mechanism. This 2-in-1 system combines a pivot and button, allowing for an effortlessly magical way to close the knife.

    The Vanchor lock integrates a magnetic connector and a robust lock plate, working together to ensure both stability and reinforcement. Additionally, the lock's design guarantees that the pivot/button remains recessed, regardless of the lock's engagement, for seamless operation and a sleek appearance.

     

    HIGH PERFORMANCE

    The Ankylo is powerdered by a 3.18" Bohler Elmax Blade. The Elmax steel is a well-rounded blade material that combines excellent edge retention, high wear resistance, good corrosion resistance, high toughness, and ease of sharpening. 

     

    ERGONOMIC HANDLE

    The Handles are made from 6061 Aerospace Grade Aluminum. They offer a great strength-to-weight ratio, and we did tons of tests to find the most comfortable handle shape for you. To take the ergonomics to the next level, all corners of the handle are double CNC chamfered.

     

    REVERSIBLE CLIP

    A reversible clip allows both right-handed and left-handed users to enjoy the knife. It also comes with a filler tap that can cover the non-clip side. This added feature enhances the aesthetics and acts as a protective barrier against dirt, dust, or other debris.

     

    BACK STORY

    A knife with a NEW lock mechanism

    A knife with tons of FUN factors

    A knife with a COMFORTABLE design

    A knife with a SECURED lock-up

    After almost 27 months of hard-working, head-scratching, coffee, and beers, the Ankylo is finally ready to roam on the knife horizon! It's our most sincere wish that our Patented V-anchor lock Ankylo can bring joy to you, and put a big smile on your face.

    Ankylo

    Solid knife, good lock. Action is very stiff. This makes both the front flipper and back flipper difficult to use. The back flipper is small. A little bigger would help. Hopefully it brakes in more over time.

    Vosteed Ankylo

    My experience with this purchase was not good at all. Most important issue was customer service needs A HUGE improvement! Only contact method I could use was email. It took a few days to get a response and then they only answer one email per day. Phone contact was an international phone number, that I could not use due to my phone plan. Even their Instagram you must wait on acceptance for communication. I had an issue with the Ankylo lock button falling off and would not stay back on. It is super frustrating to spend almost $200 on a pocket knife to not be able to use it and then spend 2 weeks trying to resolve it with little communication. Vosteed will help but not in a timely manner. I returned due to button issue and functional issues. The front flipper did not work well with my hands. When flipping the blade back the back flipper hits the inside of my index finger. It is not a natural flip. I own 5 other front flipper knives that don't have this problem. Design in theory are great but functionality did not work. Fit and finish was great except for the button issue. I see Vosteed being great if they can fix the customer service issue. QC issues happen to all companies but as a paying customer, I want to have confidence that my issue will be taken care of in a timely manner. In 2024 with all the communication we have this should not be an issue. I love what Vosteed is putting out but because of my experience will always hesitate to purchase again. Hope this helps.
