Ansø Bar-Key
on: April 10, 2023, 01:24:12 AM
I recently stumbled upon this little gem by the Danish Knifemaker Jens Ansø. When I bought it I didn’’t know anything about this specific tool, but It had the original logo, so I couldn’t let it pass. I posted these pics on Facebook and a few collectors lost their breath..  :D :D
But noone could bring any information, so I wrote to Jens and he could inform me that it’s grade 5 Titanium, made 7-8 years ago, primarely bottleopener & prybar and discontinued. So needless to say it’s not a user and it lies besides my Atwoods and my other one piece tools..  :) 8)

I’m not sure it would be my choice to carry even if they were widely available, but definitely a neat one for the collection.  Thanks for sharing it!

I wish CRKT, Kershaw, MKM, or any of the other companies who have done Jens Anso's designs would pick this one up. It makes a lot more sense than the aluminum carabiner tool thingy Kershaw released some time ago. I'd love to have this on my keys.
