Five years ago we thought we might want to make axes, and it was spending a day forging a paper knife with the fantastically patient Melissa Cole that led us to the light. A further weekend with the inestimable Dave Budd gave us a further steer, and since then we’ve received excellent advice from all of our suppliers, but most notably Richard Airey of Barmond who supplies us with wisdom and steel and George Roberts from Man and Machine who is the Inventor HSM guru.
Will Chappell, from Apogee Industries in sunny Pewsey, has provided constant moral support and guidance on the CNC front.
Design & Media
Following many iterations of website, our latest was created by the talented team at Thinking Juice. Photography and rendering was done both in-house and by the superbly creative Sean Ebsworth Barnes.
Our film content was very kindly shot for us by the wizard that is Peter Edwards at Ben & Harvey.
For bulk orders and catch-up, or just when our mill can’t cope, we turn to Ashley and John at Multax who are also starting up on their own, but with a great deal more experience in these matters than we could ever hope to gain.
In the main, however, we are entirely self-taught and it continues to amaze us what the internet, and the willingness to make mistakes and move on, allows one to achieve. We have also read lots of books – including such page-turners as the American Society for Metals Handbook Vol. 5 Surface Cleaning, Finishing and Coating. Drop either of us an email if you’d like some reading recommendations…
Richard and Tiffany at EJ Wicks help us with all our wraps, pouches, sheaths and rolls.
