Launched in 2001, ONE AXE represents Founder Frederick Schuett’s propensity for living life on the edge. On his first mountaineering adventure, he commented to his instructor that the icy slope wasn’t much of a challenge. The instructor took away one of his axes, unknowingly giving birth to ONE AXE Fred.
