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.
Your lifestyle may not include many activities that require the use of an ax (apologies to the urban woodsmen out there), but once you see the gorgeously worked axes by Best Made Company, there's a good chance you'll be coveting one of their limited-edition designs. Our sale has stripey options in classic forest green, bright lemon yellow, and more—in addition to accessories that (naturally) include a leather back sling so you can tote your ax wherever you go.
Embrace your inner woodsman with hand-painted axes, wool caps, enamel plates, and more rugged outdoor gear.
This massive collection of rugged apparel, footwear, and accessories has everything you need to kit yourself out for a weekend in the wilderness—from sturdy boots, to functional jackets, to durable luggage. Can’t slip out of the city? Worry not. Classic good looks and utilitarian charm mean this gear works just as well in the urban jungle as it does in great outdoors.
