    It's a shame, I've been wanting to pick up a couple Wetterlings models for a while now. Seems like every model I search for is out of stock or jumped in price....Luckily, I picked up a vintage one at least. I'd kill to get their maul before they disappear.

    Odd way for a company to get promotion but if this gets Wetterlings some press and publicity perhaps their goods will live on through the next owner (and user of the former workers and facilities).

    I feel the same way, Wetterlings just felt better in my hands than the GB's. I am very saddened to see them stop production! I had the Les Stroud Bushman as well but regrettably sold it a few years ago. I still have their Scandinavian Forest Axe which I bought right before they stopped making that model and which I will NEVER sell!
