THE BEST MADE AXE

Designed from the ground up in New York City by BEST MADE COMPANY, tested the world over. The American Felling Axe has a 4lb Dayton pattern head, perhaps one of the most iconic American axe head designs, which is drop forged in the United States from an American-made 5160 alloy steel that is hardened to a Rockwell hardness of 54-56 HRC. The Best Made mark (BMC) is forged into the butt of the axe head. A distinguishing trait of our axe head is its slim profile which — relative to many other contemporary felling axes — makes for improved cutting and chip throwing. The handle of the American Felling Axe is a straight-grain, premium hickory that originates in Appalachia. We designed the handle to provide maximum efficiency, comfort, and safety. We go to great lengths to source an unrivaled wood grain. Every axe is emblazoned with our trademark logo on the handle, and a removable American Felling Axe sticker on the head.

SHINOLA LEATHER FACTORY

A GREAT POST BY COOL HUNTING WE WANTED TO SHARE: “During a trip to Detroit’s Shinola headquarters, we got a first-hand look at its recently opened leather factory and design studio—another step in their continued quest to revive American manufacturing. The brand has commenced operations with the making of leather watch straps, right next door to where the popular watches are themselves constructed. This clever move for Shinola will help streamline their manufacturing across products, as well as open doors for more rapid design and production of other goods in the future.”

Made in Texas, the new Mac Pro it is setting the bar in the world of technology, creating jobs in the USA, and being an example in domestic manufacturing to those who forgot how great America is at building goods domestically. Manufacturing in the USA is how Apple began, and as a HUGE Apple fan I am excited to say they are back. The new Mac Pro is a computer unlike any they have ever created. To build it, Apple has pioneered a new processes, innovated manufacturing techniques, and essentially rethought how to make a computer. This is the story of how it all comes together.
