At Sharpen the Axe we like to use metaphors and physical pursuits to create a context for deeper meaning in life. The mantra ‘Stay Sharp’ is a nod to falling in love with the idea that we should never stop improving, regardless of our current circumstances. This concept has resonated with us far beyond the walls of our gyms recently and serves as a value that urges us forward, knowing we must always continue to improve. The addition of the “Talk & Walk” print on the back signifies two very important ideas. The first is that talking in itself is simply not enough, and the idea of taking action or walking before having these meaningful conversations could also lead to misdirected passion. The second idea we are nodding to with the logo coming more into focus as the words appear is that repetition is key for progress.
The shirts are priced as they normally would be on our site to make sure we can get as many people involved as possible, with the option to donate additional funds for those of you that can do so. All proceeds will be donated to the organizations listed below, with a portion being set aside if our community wants to suggest and add an additional organization. Thank you in advance for supporting this project by buying, donating, and sharing the link.
All shirts will ship ASAP in July based on total volume.
