The Brands at WOODSMITH should in all cases reflect our own philosophy. With hand tools we take the view that they should firstly do a job very well and if well looked after, last a long time of sustained use.

Ideally, tools should last a lifetime. If a tool breaks, such as a handle on an axe for example, replacements should be available to avoid needing to throw the tool away.

We are always happy to help with advice to successfully complete a repair.

Many of WOODSMITH’s Brands such as Kalthoff Axes, Kay Embretsen, Hans Karlsson, Svante Djarv and Peavey Manufacturing Co are only available in the UK via WOODSMITH.

You may notice many of our Brands originate from Sweden. This is no coincidence, apart from the fact that we love Swedish culture, we just connect with and like the design and business ethic of many Swedish companies.  Many are small family businesses but there are also those such as Tormek, Sjobergs, Gransfors Bruk and Hultafors which are large world players. Quality with good design are bywords shared by them all.
