Outdoor Accessories: Best Made Co

wood axes by Best Made Co

“Peter knew that a well made axe — the oldest and most invaluable tool known to mankind — could not only function as a lifeline in the wilderness, but at home it could be a magnificent window into that wilderness and inspire people to reconnect with their hands, craft, and nature.”

Exemplifying the idea of doing one thing really well, Peter Buchanan-Smith did his research and created an axe like no other. This beautiful object, with it’s evocative qualities has since become the springboard for Best Made Company, based in NY, to produce a number of products (bags, maps, clothes, etc) to encourage people to get outside, use their hands and in doing so embark on a life of fulfilling projects and lasting experiences. It’s success – the axes can be found in the Saatchi gallery, famous people own them and the NY Times did a great piece on the company – is a bold and fundamental sign of the times; an irresistible combination of authenticity and the outdoors, but at it’s base is a maker who cared about connecting with his own roots and crafted something old for a new generation.
