Drawing on a deep appreciation for the simple pleasure of learning and discovery, Kaufmann Mercantile set out to provide a reference tool for creating meaningful experiences with the products that fill the home; a place and page for people to turn to for guidance and inspiration. The Kaufmann Mercantile Guide is a trusty companion that empowers readers with forty-eight how-tosspanning five categories, includingKitchen, Outdoors, Home, Garden, and Grooming, on everything from caring for cast iron pans to mastering a basic knot.  Each step-by-step project includes suggested tools that can help one get the job done, whether a dibber for planting or authentic BBQ smoking bags for the grill. 

"This book began out of a curiosity for how we grow, build, and craft the world around us. We discovered that there's an art to a simple task done well," said Sebastian Kaufmann, CEO and Founder of Kaufmann Mercantile. "We've pooled knowledge gleaned from working with makers and designers from around the world to bring our expertise to urban and cabin dwellers alike, a place and page for people to turn to for guidance and inspiration."

The Kaufmann Mercantile Guide grew from the very roots of the company: A blog called Kaufmann Mercantile 'References'. Before launching products on his website in 2010, Sebastian Kaufmann set out to engage with like-minded consumers, those searching for better quality, purpose-built products that will last for a lifetime. His first post was a love letter to the Estwing Hammer, which Kaufmann Mercantile still carries to this day.  Five years and over 300 articles later, Kaufmann Mercantile's blog (now Field Notes) serves as a supplement to Kaufmann Mercantile's online store of well made everyday classics, featuring a library of how-to guides and Q&As with makers, artists and designers.
