Josh Vogel

In 2009, The Scout embarked on a series documenting craftsmanship. Brennan Stasiewicz, Ed David, and I would soon discover the joy and popularity in the topic. We didn’t realize how successful the series would be and the proliferation of videos throughout the web that would follow surrounding the theme. As the recession hit harder, brands began telling their story and attached their identity to everything craft. The word “craftsmanship” began to sound more like a marketing term than something of true value. We don’t claim to be responsible for starting a trend, we only hope that we stood apart from the sea of videos that have developed in the past three years. We still strongly believe in the art of skilled labor and will be covering this topic for a long time to come. And so with that, we introduce to you to episode four, Josh Vogel of Blackcreek Mercantile & Trading Co. We decided to take a different approach, for more information on Josh read our feature from January. I encourage you to enlarge the video for a better viewing experience.

Scout, thanks for taking film, pen, and camera to these great craftspeople. You're right. We hunger for the return and more so because of the repression. Lets hope we don't forget when the ship rights.
