best made.

i gave J a Best Made axe for christmas this year—it came in a huge handmade wooden crate and was delivered to my office, much to the delight of all my male coworkers.

and now i get the Best Made newsletter every few weeks and, as a result, frequently wonder if there’s a way i can justify purchasing another axe—because there’s always a new colour or pattern ready and these axes, sitting on the border between fashion accessory and functional tool, seem like they’d be even better if you had a set. or whole collection.

today the newsletter informed me of this, an entirely new rustic, crafted object to covet. the archival clothing rucksack.

“just going for a walk downtown with my axe in a bag that’s made with 22-ounce heavyweight waxed cotton twill, Horween Chromexcel leather, solid brass hardware, and military-grade cotton webbing. time to find something to chop!”

i love it.
