It’s my goal to design different and minimal knives. As knife designer I believe in my philosophy ” Sharp is more ”. When designing I try to minimize the concept and add a timeless appearance.

Knives are functional design worth collecting, useful art to cherish.

Both the design and the manufacturing are done with the minimum of parts and tools. In this way I develop a totally different style, recognized as ENSIZEN.

Filip De Coene

The brand naming is crafted by combining the word ENSIS, the Latin term for blade, and ZEN, as minimalism highly inspired from the Japonese traditional design and the Zen philosophy.

Escape completely ➝ modifying traditional assembly to the minimum and increase usability.

Explore the world ➝ thinking ” out of the box “, invest in future oriented concepts with essence to ergonomics.
