Explores how far steel can bend

  • • Peeter creates age old tools for modern builders
  • • He has a passion for traditional handmade axes
  • • He is a visiting teacher at the University of Tartu

Peeter Reemann proudly carries out one of the oldest professions in the world and upholds hundreds – if not thousands – of years of old smithing techniques in his forge, which he transformed from an old stable next to his home. Peeter is known worldwide for creating tools for log house builders, especially axes. He forge welds blades for beautiful hand axes. He has learned and adapted his traditional training after visiting other countries such as Austria, France, Hungary and Norway, under different master's guidance – one of the most influential masters was Halle Groeling. But the person who opened the world of tools for Peeter was a Norwegian log house expert called George Fuller.
