Nick Offerman, who is probably most recognized as the character Ron Swanson from the show Parks & Recreation recently did an interview on Hot Ones. Whether or not you're a fan of his acting, its worth noting that he is also quite the woodworker and craftsman. During the interview, he was asked about his views on getting pizza delivered by drone, which leads to a great section about his views on industrial consumerism:
Now it's fair to say we aren't woodworkers here at Anvil Customs, but the sentiment he speaks about says volumes about the nature of what we do with leather here at our shop. Knowing your tools and materials, making stuff with your hands, and doing it to make something that will last a long, long time are all fundamental facets of the leatherwork we do. Our wallets, belts, and various other products are crafted with care so that while you might spend more on one made by us, you're not going to have to buy a new one in a year or two because it wore out... but you might want to just because of how awesome they are. Now we ham it up on social media sure, because we get to have a great time doing what we love to do, but make no mistake we have some real tenets we live and work by here at Anvil Customs:
We have a lifetime warranty because we know how tough our products are, and we stand behind that.
We take our time and give each product the attention to detail it deserves.
We do our best to make use of every square inch of hide because it's not only better for the environment, but it's also just good business practice.
Our focus is on quality over quantity. When you purchase something from us you're buying from a small business, not a giant factory that pumps out thousands of crap products a month.
Our customers mean the world to us. That's why we formed the Anvil Crew, to bring like-minded people together behind our brand. Customer service, communication, and a sincere wish for you to be happy with your purchase are always at the top of our minds.
For pretty much all products these days we've begun to list out a specific set of specifications that are featured as part of each product. These specs liste improtant details like the material a product is made of, it's color, or size. But there are a few more particular specifications that may not make much sense to the unaware that can really impact your experience with your Anvil Product in the long run...
This year marks the 15th anniversary for Anvil Customs. Recently we asked our followers to participate in a photo contest celebrating their Anvil gear! As a small, American Business that crafts premium leather goods we have gained an excellent following that grows more and more each day. We're proud to make our wallets, belts, and various other leather goods with a keen eye and sense of uniqueness. We happen to think our work is pretty darn photogenic, so we couldn't wait to see what folks came up with...
