Grab a hatchet, book a trip and hit the trails.

The story. And why we do what we do.

In the hustle and bustle of the world we live in, a majority of people feel stuck. A pawn in the corporate world. We aim to help break the norm. Grab a hatchet, book a trip and hit the trails. Reconnect with yourself and with nature. Create a story worth telling. 

The vision for Motor City Axe was born out of our love for lasting craftsmanship, a desire to work with our hands and a passion for the outdoors. Each axe/hatchet is made in the USA and hand-painted in Detroit, MI.


This idea blossomed almost 7 years ago when our founder discovered his late-grandfather’s Kelly Axe and Tool hatchet in the garage. The hatchet had withstood the test of time.


The tools we sell, have and will withstand the test of time. They tell a story. The city they are crafted in has, countless times, been ruled out but both have risen from the ashes.


What will your story tell?
