YOU ASKED. WE ANSWERED.
Why SHOULD I BE WELL-hEWN?
By definition, hewn (pronounced hyoon) means to be felled and roughly shaped by the act of hewing. We don't literally want to see you cut and shaped. But we do want to help you achieve a rugged, well-shaped edge with our products, so you can walk the fine line between man and beast.
WHAT IS AN ADZE, ANYWAY?
While the oak tree is at the foundation of our Florida frontier, the adze introduces the maker into our story. In ages past, adzes were used by our founding fathers in the shaping of structural pieces in the keels of fishing boats. Long-handle adzes hew the wild oaks into workable wood, while short-handle adzes shape the oak into finished works.
ARE YOUR MANCRAFTS MEANT TO BE CRAFTY?
When we say mancrafts, we don't mean literal crafting, like knitting or painting pottery. However, if that's your thing, go forth and prosper. Our mancrafts selection includes well-made goods ranging from grooming products, like razors and beard oils for the modern gentleman, to outdoor equipment for the rugged adventurer. These mancrafts all have something crucial in common...they are equal parts functional and good looking.
I'M NOT A GENTLEMANLY MAN. CAN I STILL USE YOUR PRODUCTS?
While our products are made with men in mind, we do not discriminate here at Oak & Adze. Whether rugged beast or fair maiden, our products were made to suit all bearded and non-bearded men…and women.
YOU CALL YOURSELF A MAKER. WHAT PRODUCTS DO YOU MAKE YOURSELF?
In addition to the collection of mancrafts you'll find stocked in our St. Augustine storefront, hailing from a number of makers spread far and wide, we make our own line of all-natural gentlemanly grooming products. At this time, our growing list includes: beard oil, beard balm, and lip balm. Read more about these handmade products here.
WHERE DO YOU MAKE YOUR PRODUCTS? AND ARE THEY ANY GOOD?
Our manufacturing base is on our home frontier in St. Augustine, FL. Here, our artisan grooming products are made by hand in a small-batch facility. We use high quality ingredients and nothing about our operation is haphazard or without attention. We take our formulating seriously and put our creativity and expertise to the test with every new product we make. We make our products to surpass our own standards, meaning they are more than good enough for us. And we are tough critics here at Oak & Adze.
WILL YOUR BEARD PRODUCTS Really HELP MY BEARD STAY FRESH AND LOOK SHARP?
Yes, really. Not only will our beard oils help your beard stay fresh, they will keep your beard strong and supple, without feeling greasy or weighed down. With the help of just the right amount of beeswax, our beard balms will give you the subtle hold you need to tame your face mane or style your stache. We suggest choosing the product and scent that pairs best with your beardly needs and personality. Shop our beard products here.
HELP! MY BEARD OIL FROZE! Is THIS NORMAL?
No need to panic. It's just the coconut oil doing its thing. Our guess is you live in a land much colder than our Florida home frontier. Try putting the bottle in a warm pants pocket, or running it under warm water for a few seconds. Then all will be well and you will be ready to carry on.
CAN I STOCK YOUR BEARD OILS and BALMS IN MY STORE?
Sure. Well, maybe. First we need to know who you are. Send us a note via the form on our wholesale page and we will provide you with our sell sheet and everything you need to know about being a stockist for Oak & Adze.
