Firn Snowshovel

Tied for the Next Stop: Brooklyn artisanal award is the Firn snowshovel, that has to be in every shed along with the Bestmade Axe. Because you can't shovel your snow without a lovely handmade artisanal shovel. Designed by Patrick Kroetsch & Dominik Gmeiner.

Firn began by stripping the complexity from the modern snow shovel; reducing the archetype to its most essential elements: blade, handle and grip. Firn is composed of only four components to create a beautiful and practical tool.
