A New Brand for the Backcountry: Wetterlings

| November 11, 2012 | 0 Comments

We are always in pursuit of the best quality products to offer our customers and we think we’ve found that in Wetterlings, a Swedish company making heavy-duty forged steel axes. We currently carry four models of their axes and I must say, having held these in my hands, I can attest to their quality and craftsmanship. This is a company that does not skimp and the quality of their axes is hard to match.

Some things that stand out about the company itself is the fact that they’ve been around since 1880 and their CEO, 23-year-old Julia Kalthoff. As a 23-year-old myself it is very inspirational to see a young person take a company as old as Wetterlings and lead them, making great quality products along the way. The New York Times wrote a nice profile on Julia and subsequently Wetterlings and we urge you to take a few minutes to check it out, here.
