The name "MerkWares" is just a play on my last name, and could be interpreted as "Stuff I Make". The logo incorporates the symbols of Tooth and Talon. While we may not have been blessed with fur, fangs, fins, or claws to cope with the environment we do have the capacity to make our own so to speak. The goal behind MerkWares is to design tools and gear that enhance the wilderness experience by encouraging meaningful interaction rather than insulating one from the outdoors.  In my opinion, a good outing means coming home with dirt under your nails and the smell of campfire in your clothes.        -Mikhail Merkurieff
