Join us for this chat with crafty axe maker Julia Kalthoff. We learn about her lifelong craft journey from her mother’s fabric store to working for Wetterlings. We get into all of the the details of the inception and production of the axes she makes–from the long process of refining each aspect of the design and production, to the rigorous refinement of the metallurgical alchemy of tool making, to some of the finer points of grind geometry, fitting the handles and more. We also touch on the subject of preserving a strong and healthy body whilst pursuing handcraft beyond the hobby scale. And she offers a refreshing to our famous last question… We really enjoyed speaking with Julia, she is a wealth of knowledge and experience!
