NORDIC STYLE AND ORIENTAL TRADITION
With base in the windswept no-mans-land of rural Denmark, Jens Ansø designs and creates knives that inspire him and give him the ultimate feeling of function and beauty. Inspired by everything from traditional Japanese carpentry to modern architecture, vintage danish furniture designs to traditional jewelry craftsmanship, Jens has built his life around what satisfies him the most – designing and making unique, high quality products.
The Anso products must have a level of detail, a deeper quality, a refinement that speaks to him. Sometimes a value that is only seen in use or maybe its hidden so only the owner know about it. Other times it is that single details that makes the whole product work. It can be matter of that perfect marriage of material and shape. Jens Anso does business as Anso of Denmark where Custom knives is the backbone of his production. This is where it all started close to 30 years ago when He made the first knife. Anso's first collaboration with Viper was the SAKURA kitchen line studied together with Jesper Vox.
