Brant & Cochran is a local Maine company that forges Allagash Cruiser and Dirigo Belt Axes — the only Maine wedge pattern camp axes being made today. They also restore vintage axes, and sell related accessories and apparel. These Maine axes date back to the early 1900s and were used, of course, in the rich logging industry we have here in Maine. Being deeply invested in the logging industry and history of Maine forestry ourselves, Team Hancock couldn’t think of a better partnership and 175th Anniversary memento than a custom, Made-in-Maine Hancock Lumber wedge. Watch this video to meet Mark Ferguson, one of the co-owners and operating managers of Brant & Cochran, and watch our Hancock Lumber axe come to life!
