The ethos behind the design, has been to make a tough dependable tool, which is of equal strength and durability, as its traditional un-packable equivalent. The weight of the tools has been kept to an absolute minimum without compromising on the above point. Trail building is like going to the gym, not easy, but worth it. If we made the tool any lighter, it would not be durable. We hope our tool will span generations.
