 Issue 2011, vol. 4 

We are back from the Blade Show 2011 and we sure had a blast in our first own booth! Much to my surprise, we got visitors from Switzerland - Mr. Elsener Jr. and his wife, who stopped by the booth for a chat and took some samples back to Ibach. Mr. Elsener Sr. got inducted into the Blade's cutlery Hall of Fame, and Mr. Elsener Jr. attended the ceremony to thank for this honour. Damon and I had the pleasure of seeing the whole celebration, something we will not forget, and now we have to work hard so that Mr. Elsener Jr. can join his father in the Hall of Fame as well.

Just in time for the Blade Show we got a number of different new Alox SAKs in olive green and blue colour, plus the first prototypes of the Damascus 111mm one-hand opening SAK. Some handmade Ultralight Swissbianco™ OPT, as well as more custom tactical Swissbianco™ cutlery will follow soon.
