When we started selling Snow and Nealley axes online, we chose a name that connected with the Snow and Nealley heritage. We also tried to make clear that, while we were using Snow and Nealley’s tagline as our own store name, we were not officially connected with the company. However, over the years we’ve noticed that the name was a bit confusing. So to clarify our independent relationship with the company, we’ve adopted a new name: The Working Axes.

The new name is starting to grow on us, and we hope it makes sense to you. Because although Snow and Nealley axes are lovely to look at and beautiful in the hand, they really shine when they’re covered in forest filth. The hardened steel heads and finely shaped handles are crafted to work hard, year after year.
