Peter Buchanan-Smith and Graeme Cameron have opened Best Made Co, an axe company in Tribeca.

A 100-year-old company in Maine makes them by hand, to our specifications, with Tennessee hickory handles and fine-grained steel heads. We sand, shape, and mask off the handle. Then we prime it and spray on multiple layers of high-quality graffiti paint.
