Woodman's Pal


In 1941, Frederick Ehrsam introduced the Woodman's Pal to the market. Ehrsam, a Swiss national who had settled in Pennsylvania, was an accomplished engineer, artist, and woodworker. He recognized the need for an “all-in-one” land management tool. He built a single tool that performs the functionality of multiple brush tools. Because of its lightweight, balanced, and compact form, the Woodman's Pal is suitable for all outdoor jobs, from clearing brush and blazing paths to cutting, thinning, chopping, and pruning. The functionality and premium quality of this tool made it a “must-have” tool for agriculture, horticulture, and land management professionals. Although the iconic Woodman’s Pal is what the brand is known for, you can also find leather tool tote bags, hats, leather sheaths, and sharpening stones in their inventory.
