From Mark Harrell, founder of Bad Axe Tool Works:

I’ve sold Bad Axe to my employees and can now segue into my mid-60’s still involved with the company Yvonne and I founded—teaching seminars and restoring vintage saws—but now I’ll have more time for my family, writing my saw book, and completing some woodworking projects of my own.

On November 15th, I handed the reins over to Cassandra Dahlen and Sam Rupprecht, the dynamic duo I trained how to run Bad Axe, and to whom I have now sold the company—in partnership with our neighbor and co-owner, Steve, who has increasingly absorbed our manufacturing requirement over the past two years.

Still a part of the Bad Axe team, Harrell now holds the position of Chief Consultant for the brand while also focusing on servicing vintage saws in his shop next door, continuing to conduct quarterly weekend and advanced seminars under his new banner at sawsharp.com.
