It's sudden, but I bought a small axe.
Why the ax...? when? where? What do you use it for? I am sometimes asked...
I had been interested in it for a while and bought it completely out of love at first sight.
The power and presence conveyed by this small ax, which is only about 25 centimeters long, is quite impressive...and the production background is also impressive.
I opened the booklet "Ax Book" that came with the package.
This is a long-established Swedish brand that has been producing axes since 1902.The company has over 20 employees.
The axes that take time to make one by one are not made in pieces, but each craftsman is responsible for making each ax from start to finish.
If he is satisfied with the ax he has created, he engraves his initials next to the company seal on the ax head.
It says, "We have unlimited responsibility for total quality."
At Head Factory, each person sews one item at a time.We stamp our own stamps on the tags rather than engrave them, but there is something similar.
Axes and leather jackets. Even other things.
Although the things we make and the content of our work are different, as long as we have the same approach to making things, I don't think there is any difference.
4 hours drive north from Stockholm. It is deeply moving to think that there are people who feel like comrades even in faraway places.
I wonder if there are more I just don't know about...?
I would be happy if there were more.
