FOREST and Arb has begun stocking a wide range of Bison axes, authentic tools with hand-forged heads, crafted in Germany to supremely high quality, ensuring your tools are good enough for the tough jobs ahead.

CRISPI has launched its own chainsaw protection boot.

Developed for both the forestry and arboriculture markets with comfort and durability in mind, the Class 2 chainsaw boot is described as very lightweight at around 930 grams. A key method for keeping the weight down while providing support is the inclusion of TWT, which is visible on the side of the boot.

The Thermo Wire Technology (TWT) is an innovative system developed by CRISPI which permits support to the upper by giving extra structure, better stability, protection and support to the shoe.

OUTWEAR is the UK and Ireland distributor for CRISPI.
