ABOUT

Reid Schwartz is an artist and interested human: A maker of tools, worker of wood, and restorer of old things. He has been carving wood for most of his life and making tools for over 15 years. His explorations into the history and traditions of woodland crafts have grown into a passion for the tools and technologies of first nations makers from around the world.

 

Reid works alone and produces his hand-made tools full time in his modest, hand oriented workshop. He does not have a wait list or take pre-orders in order to focus maximum energy on producing the largest and most beautiful batches of tools he possibly can. Most of the time this web-shop will be sold out between releases, but it is regularly updated with new stock as batches of tools are completed.

 

Tool releases are announced a few days in advance through Reid's instagram page, or you may choose to sign up for his mailing list in order to be notified by e-mail.
