“There was a mythical character who used to roam around my camp…who taught us by example that with just our wits and a good axe, we could live, and we wouldn’t need anything else but those 2 things. Fast forward 30 years and here I am living in Manhattan, surrounded by iPhones, flat screen TVs, incandescent light bulbs and ergonomic pillows, and one day I realized: all I really wanted was just a good axe: so I got to work.”- Peter Buchanan-Smith, founder of Best Made Company.
