Courage, Compassion, Grace and Fortitude (C.C.G.F.). We share our most cherished virtues — all of which are emblazoned on our axes — in the hope that our customer will maintain a similarly bold and brave outlook. We donate proceeds from our Fortitude axe, Be Optimistic Felt Badge, and Be Optimistic Enamel Charger to the It Gets Better Project, which inspires hope for LGBT kids who are facing bullying and other forms of harassment.

The Wilderness Stewardship Program
The Wilderness Stewardship Program

Since our founding, we’ve provided axes and tools to the people that protect and maintain our wilderness areas. The Wilderness Stewardship Program provides trail crew volunteers and US Forest Service professionals exclusively discounted products with the aim of helping them further develop and maintain the trail systems and wilderness areas. We’re dedicated to equipping customers with quality tools and dependable information that they can use to get outdoors, and no one fulfills this mission better than the custodians of our trails, parks, and wildlife.

Qualified groups include:
- professional and volunteer members of local / state / national trail crews
- employees of the US Forest Service, Hotshot & Smokejumper crews
