Thank you for visiting the website. My name is Lance.  My earliest and happiest thoughts revolved around playing in the woods. Some four decades later such pursuits still occupy the bulk of my passion. The solace I’ve found in my pursuit of a natural lifestyle in the forests and countryside has never wained, but rather intensified as the years have gone on. Living in North Idaho and having now started this shop is really a manifestation of what has been germinating within me for most of my life. Alongside the thrill of being out in the woods has also existed a passion for the tools of the woodsman’s trade. Knives, axes, and other such instruments of the countryside hobbyist have long held a fascination for me. With this interest has evolved a pursuit to find the highest quality gear available and to then make it available to my fellow travelers.
