1. The Takedown Skillet // dream cookware for the culinary camper
“Iron is the reigning standard for camp cookware. Working with a legendary British iron foundry, we designed our Skillet to be packable and lifelong. Turned on a lathe from a flat piece of iron, our Takedown Skillet is half the weight of cast iron with similar heat-retention properties. Two brass wing nuts secure the handle to the pan, so that the Skillet can be broken down and stowed in any pack or saddlebag. Pre-seasoned with a family-kept natural oil blend, our 10” Skillet ships ready to sling bacon for the whole crew. “ - Best Made Co.
“The design for this badge came to us a long time a go by way of an old postcard in the mail. Since then Best Made has circulated this message of hope all the while attempting to track down the original source and or the designer... and they still remain at large. All we know is that it's old, and that although it was not our design, it was none the less one that we felt compelled to spread far and wide. We do not aim to profit from this anonymous piece which is why we're donating proceeds from the sale of this badge to the It Gets Better Project. " - Best Made Co.

4. Berger 13" German Bucksaw // a must-have for any outdoorsmen or gardener
"If time spent at our camp at Lumberland, NY has taught us anything, it's that a good bucksaw is worth its weight in gold, and most bucksaws out there aren't worth a penny. The Berger Bucksaw cuts through the clutter on the market in construction alone. This saw is superbly built, with a solid beechwood handle (warm to the touch), a 13" rotatable blade, and an aluminum quick tension lever that'll get your saw tight as a banjo. Overall Berger designed this saw to make the most of your efforts, and in doing so delivers an extremely efficient cut." - Best Made Co.
