Ansel took their advice and started the WoodenKnife manufacturing plant, located behind the cafe. As with any small business it took a lot of hard work. Ansel WoodenKnife felt and still feels strongly about giving customers an exceptional quality product right down to the packaging.
One packaging option is a version of the Native American pouch bag. This option gives a small look into the Sioux Indian culture. Back when the Sioux Indians were still migrating with the buffalo, pouch bags were used to store and transport grain and other goods. The other packaging option, although more main stream still has a personal touch. Ansel personally designed the blue and yellow box himself, using hand-drawn artwork.
