Field Notes In Action:

Hammer, Time

February 29th, 2012 by Bryan Bedell

Chris Adamiak of Damn Yak Dry Goods up in Canada let us know about FIELD NOTES’ role in a great DIY restoration project: his sister-in-law’s father’s Estwing claw hammer. In an age where just about everything is disposable, the amount of work and love that Chris put into restoring this hammer (which coulda been replaced for eight bucks) is remarkable. The finished product is worth well more than the sum of its parts, it’s a showpiece of a family’s history, and hopefully will be cherished for generations. When we see people like Chris using FIELD NOTES, we know we’re getting into the right hands.
