Adler was founded in 1919 by Josef Schmitt. Every Adler Axe now bears the “JSW” mark—the “JS” to honor Josef Schmitt and the “W” to signify its time-honored origins in the small village of Wiesental (located just south of the current factory  in Waghäusel). In other words, this isn't your standard-fare hardware store axe. This blade has character, history, and craft. 

One more reason to swing an Adler: The Adler paint factory is water-based and wood waste is used to generate the energy (up to 700KW) that runs their factory. Pretty Cool.
