Jesper Voxnaes of Loegstrup, Denmark is a master of his craft—he’s fluent in the principles of knife design. That’s how he knows exactly when to bend the rules. At first glance, the shape of the knife is deceivingly box-like. But get your hand around the aluminum handle, and it feels like it belongs. The drop point blade is crafted of D2 steel for excellent edge retention and it deploys smoothly with the IKBS™ ball bearing pivot system. Find it slowing down in the middle of a dirty workday and Field Strip Gen II lets you quickly disassemble it without tools on the spot to purge it of grease and grime.
Knife maintenance was never made to look so good.
How Field Strip Gen II Works
Slide the lever up to disassemble, easily releasing the knife into three components. Place the blade between the two handles in the closed position and slide the lever down to reassemble.
When Jesper needs to test a design, he only has to step into his own backyard. The harsh elements and conditions of the fjords and forests in his native Denmark do the rest. When he was starting out, no one was making the kind of knives he wanted to design so he learned by trial and error. Apparently his efforts paid off given his IF Award in 2013 for one of the Top European Designs. Now he creates and uses knives like the Amicus® as he sails, camps, and drives off-road. Which is more often than not.
