ABOUT AXE KEEPER

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!).
