Canoe Tools 

We were lucky enough to get support from a couple of amazing axe makers in Sweden, Gränsfors Bruk provided all our larger tools, and Hans Karlsson the smaller tools for more precision carving. Every item was exquisitely hand made in their factories, which we had the privilege  of visiting before our trip to the Amazon. The majority of the tools were left with Bay in the Amazon.
