Santa Fe Stone works sits in a century-old adobe ranch house located in Santa Fe, New Mexico. There, each piece is hand-made by artist Bill Wertel, who prides himself on "coaxing the Soul out of Stone, Wood and Steel". The blades and various tools created here are true works of art, a future heirlooms to be appreciated for years to come.
The Kershaw Leek just may be the ideal EDC (everyday carry). With its 3-inch blade, the Leek is a good-sized knife, but not too big. The slim design makes it easy to carry and its razor-sharp blade of high-performance Sandvik 14C28N means it can take care of a full range of cutting tasks.
Woolly Mammoth Tooth
Of all the animals that lived during the last Ice Age, the Woolly Mammoth is one of the best known. The material in this knife handle is actually a section of a tooth from a Woolly Mammoth – one that lived around 15,000 years ago.
The Audubon Bird Call is a classic, simple birdwatcher's tool with a 60 year history. Invented by Roger Eddy in 1947, its success was immediate and its production ran parallel to Mr. Eddy's other accomplishments: four published novels, several terms in the Connecticut state legislature, and maintaining a successful produce farm outside of Hartford.
The Bird Call is made from cast zinc and birch wood in Rhode Island (the metal ring still reads "NEWINGTON CONN" in honor of the factory's original location). It doesn't mimic specific birdcalls but rather creates a tweeting noise that curious birds recognize and investigate.
American Bird Products is still owned and run by the Eddy family. With a little care and the occasional application of rosin, their Bird Call will last for years.
