What Is an Axe Keeper?

Stay Sharp!

Traditionally, the Axe Keeper was a member of "Her Majesty's Body Guard of the Honourable Corps of Gentlemen at Arms". Because we're American and we're cheeky, we've adopted the tradition as our own. An interesting oral history of this position and the corps is available at the Life On The Line Podcast.

The Axe Keeper kept the axes and other blades sharp for the Gentleman at Arms.

This corps was originally formed by King Henry VIII to serve as the nearest guard to protect the Monarch. Comprised of all ex-service-members, this was an elite group of soldiers.

Since we don't serve the Monarch, we'll keep the axes sharp and ready for you, our fellow Americans (Sorry, no pitchforks, but we do have hatchets and ninja stars!).

Who Are The Axe Keepers?

Work Hard and Be Nice to People. 

Valery and Landon have been throwing axes since 2017 when they discovered the sport at a popular axe throwing bar in Brooklyn, New York.

After visiting axe throwing venues around the country they refined and brought the activity to the Tri-Cities! They have brought the best in what they found for your enjoyment. At Axe Keeper, we strive to create a safe and fun atmosphere for everyone to have a blast while participating in one of the fastest growing activities and sports in the country: axe throwing.

Axe throwing is fun because it is social and friendly competition. It's also exciting because axes are sharp and they make a pleasing sound when they sink into the target. There's something very satisfying about getting an axe to hit the mark! Whether it's a hatchet, axe or knife, people from all walks of life can come together and have a great time sharing the common experience of throwing sharp things for fun. Having taught thousands of people how to throw, we're know you'll be hitting the Bullseye Tri-Cities!
