Brand: Best Made Co.
Founded in 2009 by Peter Buchanan-Smith, Best Made Co. is crafts gear that’s informed by old-school values and aesthetics, and everything's designed to get a new generation of men and women back out in nature and working with their hands. It started with the brand's now-famous Best Made axes — they were designed with exacting attention to quality and detail, and then painted in a series of limited edition color ways that have been featured everywhere from fashion magazines to the Saatchi Gallery in London. Since then, the line has expanded to a full collection of lifestyle gear including unfinished axes, patches, maps, blankets, and even a first aid kit. Each piece passes through the brand’s workshop in Lower Manhattan, and each is made to last for ages, inspiring new projects and endeavors all the while.
