De Coene (Ensizen), Filip

I am Filip De Coene, 48 years old, belgian designer and custom knifemaker .

Knifemaking gives me the opportunity to express my interests about design, explore new techniques and upgrade my skills. As designer I believe in the philosophy ""less is more"", simplicity gets priority in design and concept.

As autodidact I started making knives in 2000, due the minimum of available tools and machines I tried different techniques and developed custom jiggs to make folding knives. First knives were liner- and framelock folders , still making them but I mostly create minimal knife concepts, generally no locking knives with emphasis to ergonomics. I try to accomplish a clean and timeless appearance, a style I named ENSIZEN.

Ensizen as expression of thoughtful minimalism, functional design defined by a uncomplicated and timeless appearance , a continuously innovation to social accepted blade concepts with emphasis to safety and ergonomics.

The brand ensizen 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.

For 2017 I am working on PRO versions of the well known Minimum and Hybrid folders and several fixed blades for hunting and bush crafting.
