We feel that quality made pocket tools are valuable, practical and enjoyable part of the makers and fixers lifestyle. It harks to the Boy Scout movement of always “Be prepared.”
So in 2018 we set out to bring our first hand tool to market. We designed prototypes and failed many times.
Finally in 2019 we struck upon our first viable, pocket tool – the Silver Fox Pocket Axe – and set about converting our concept into a product to be used more widely.
THE DESIGN PROCESS
Having bought many hand tools for personal use over the years, we knew that design, quality and attention to detail are key elements. We take inspiration from classic and vintage design, its in the sometimes simple utilitarian style that makes something stunning and useful. You only have to look at world war era tools to see beautiful design. Our challenge is to reimagine it for the modern pockets and make tools that we know you can rely on.
Each tool is hand made and quality checked before being sent out to you. This should reassure you (and us!) that each one is perfect for the job in hand.
While we make most of the tools in house, we also work with the very best crafters and machinists to bring our tools into existence. For example, the leather is hand stitched at a nearby studio and custom fit for each tool.
