Craft Masters

A series devoted to local craftsmen of distinguished outdoor gear. They might have a Web site, but their business comes mostly from word of mouth. Their shops may have a small sign or no sign at all, but floors littered with metal filings or wood shavings advertise the nature of their work. Even in a world obsessed with iPods and all the other glitz in the era of plastic and high-tech, outdoorsmen still have a weak spot for the craftsmanship of quality gear made by hand.
