Known for their axes handmade in the Appalachian mountains, Best Made Co. has designed an all-purpose first aid kit specifically for lumberjacks.

The kit is packed with 43 life-saving necessities in a dust and moisture-resistant metal case. OSHA certified and approved by the US Forest Service, it's made in Kansas City, Missouri, for Best Made Co. And for those less prone to accidents, the Small First Aid Kit features just the essentials in a red steel case for $45.
