This is not your grandfather’s axe.
It’s your grandson’s.
The Base Camp Axes :
All of the axes and blades at BCX are tested and used in conditions that ensure quality is repeatedly challenged. Snow and ice to Humid and extremely hot; function and design are put to the test on every encounter. An axe is one of the oldest tools in existence and some even argue that it is the oldest form of art known to mankind. Our axes are built to be used but there is absolutely no reason why it cannot find a home on your wall, hanging above the hearth or simply leaning up beside your desk. An axe is so versatile that it can be used to manage a forest, adorn a wall, provide heat for a home or simply start a conversation…
Searing the BCX logo into the handle by hand is all part of the process in creating one of our axes. There is something purifying in fire and this flame heated brand will provide a mark that is unique every single time it bites into the wood.
We treat every axe as though it were the only axe…
Sanded smooth by hand each handle is meticulously developed and shaped for you. No axe is ever the same. Wet sanded twice to unparalleled smoothness before the application of our eco friendly aqueous based stains. The waters used to mix with our powdered concentrates are literally collected from the lake waters at Base Camp X. Carefully mixed by hand this solution is applied to your axe with the utmost of care and concentration – There is BCX in every axe.
Star filled skies, campfires and the ever changing forest.
Each axe is packaged in 100% recycled double wall cardboard. There are no synthetic components to add to landfill. A leather head cover is fitted for each axe and branded with our irons. The only certificate of authentication you will ever need is seared directly into the wood.
Our tag is attached to each item. The date of finishing, name of the piece and signature is all penned by hand. We apply these simple finishing touches by hand as testament to the authenticity of our process and our commitment to you … our customer, the life behind the BCX brand.
