A Brief History of William J. Sager and His Involvement in the Axe Industry

Project type



February, 2023

In 1895, William J. Sager patented what he called a "Chemical Process of Treating Metals". He then used that process to develop a line of axes that would become recognizable for the duration of the next decade and beyond. Through a lifetime of working in the axe industry under numerous different businesses and companies, his life was spent forming axes and the companies that made them. This brief history covers his life from birth to death, and outlines the connections he made and the impacts that resulted from his life's work.
