  • Adam

    Owner, Des Moines

    Having a penchant for American history goes much further than a four-year degree for Adam, it's become an integral part of his life. A self-taught walking encyclopedia of traditional hand tools, he specializes in axe restoration & conceptual design.

  • Erich

    Owner, Omaha

    Erich is a man of adventure. When he's not in the workshop custom designing intricately burned hickory axe handles, he can be found restoring vintage motorcycles or playing shows across the midwest under the moniker Phantom Scout.

  • Andrew

    Owner, Hattiesburg

    Representing our Southern heritage, Andrew heads up the hand made leather goods department. He works from Fontenelle's "Hattiesburg Outpost" using traditional saddlery methods through a collaborative design process with our other owners.

  • Asher

    Owner, Omaha

    With a background in management & financial planning, Asher is successful at anything he sets his mind to. Combining these assets with inherited knowledge from old school laborers of America's blue collar past, he wears several hats at Fontenelle.

Shipping
We are happy to ship to any of the lower 48 states. Unfortunately we are unable to offer international shipping at this time. Shipping insurance is readily available upon request.

Please allow up to two weeks for shipping. Fontenelle Supply Co., while founded on the backs of a handful of talented folks, is often a one man show, which brings obvious limitations. Please send us an email with your shipping and deadline requests, and we will do our best to comply.

Shipping insurance is readily available upon request to avoid damage incurred during delivery. Items are described in detail, thus all sales are final after 48 hours and no refunds will be accepted.
Additional policies and FAQs
We are more than happy to work with you and accept custom orders! Feel free to contact us with your requests and we will get back to you within 24 hours.

Disclaimer: The axes and edge tools sold here at Fontenelle Supply Co. are vintage artifacts of our history, some dating as far back as the early 1900s. Do not expect a pristine, factory fresh piece of machined composite steel when your axe arrives. It is our goal to restore these finely crafted tools to as near their original condition as possible while preserving their original character. This is why many of the axes we sell still bear the tell-tale signs of years of use. We choose to leave such imperfections as light pitting, partially painted areas, or light mushrooming of the poll intentionally to remind us of where this tool has come from and to treat it with more care and respect than one would show a modern reproduction.
