Established in 2008 in the north Russian city of St Petersburg, the Petrograd factory of carpentry and joinery tools manufactures superb quality handcrafted axes, adzes, chisels, drawknives and carving tools and lots more besides.
The combination of Russian pragmatism, fabulous materials and a bit of creative freedom is a powerful mix, everything is very handmade and each tool has its own unique character. Forged surfaces proudly display the skill of the smiths, while woodworkers, leatherworkers, hand grinders and machinists add subtlety or accuracy as required. The range is constantly evolving with new tools being added all the time.
Many of the tools in the Petrograd range are modelled on historic examples or museum exhibits, drawing not only from Russian toolmaking history but also Scandinavian, European and British.
