A must-have compendium for the axe-wielding adventurer by one of the industry’s leading tastemakers
Buchanan-Smith’s Axe Handbook is a trusted resource for anyone looking to reconnect with handcraft and the outdoors. Beautifully designed and lavishly illustrated, this handbook will inspire readers to rediscover the great outdoors.
Peter Buchanan-Smith founded Best Made Co. in 2009 because he loved making things with his hands and wanted to start a company that would not only celebrate the inherent beauty of timeless, utilitarian tools, but would also inspire people to get out from behind their screens and experience the natural world.
From the basics and fundamentals of handling and owning an axe to the details on how to find the right axe to everything a reader must know about use and maintenance, this stylish, informative axe guide is ideal for anyone interested in the outdoors.
"Enlightening...very interesting...therein lies what was so inspiring about this book: there's so much joy tied into this simple object for the author, a deigngner who wanted to reconnect with the nature while living in a big city."
