Best Made Company Editions Axe – Ketchum

The Best Made Company makes axes, maps, bags, and accessories that would make Lewis and Clark feel like they were using a Little Tikes tool set. You’ve got to peruse their website to get the whole picture, but needless to say you’ll be impressed. The Best Made Edition Ketchum Axe was designed, hand painted, and finished in New York City, yet inspired by adventures in the great state of Idaho. Best Made Company worked hand-in-hand with Council Tools – a legendary fourth-generation American axe maker – to fabricate and revive the incomparable and quintessential American tool from the ground up.   The polished high carbon American steel was selected by Best Made Company and drop forged by skilled Council Tool blacksmiths at their venerable forge on the shores of Lake Waccama, North Carolina. Every axe is numbered, and comes with The Best Made Documentation & Guarantee Card. You can expect your axe to arrive safe and sound in a fitted top-grain leather blade guard, with safety and care tips, all of which is neatly stowed in hand-made wooden crates and can be branded with initials. Comes in a limited edition of 35.  Other Editions include Emmett, McCall, Meridian, Challis National, and Payette National.  Get it here before they’re gone for $450.00.
