Brass has a unique mesmerizing power; even though it is not as strong as titanium, nor as stable as stainless steel, its stunning vintage color deceives people into believing it has an incomparable durability that’s lacking in other metals.
Makers Cabinet has created a series of brass tools which includes the Iris drawing compass, Høvel pencil sharpener, and Stria folding ruler. The solid brass body has a heavy, satisfying weight that adds extra beauty to the elegant form of these classic tools. What’s more, the good weight of the brass assures stability in drawing.
One might think Makers Cabinet’s vision in “creating beautiful products that last a lifetime or more” is merely a marketing statement, but the brand is definitely trying to live up to that standard. Their devotion to designing long-lasting products is captured on their website with detailed product descriptions, stories of design inspiration and process, as well as instructions on care and maintenance. The brand also emphasizes that caring for the tools starts when they are crafted and their products always come with a built-in right to repair. All in all, aren’t these thoughtful products something you want to use for a lifetime?
