About Us


Since you clicked on the "About Us" tab I want to start by saying thank you for taking interest in our brand and visiting our website. 

My name is Ty "Sarge" Sobol, and making heirloom quality sewn goods isn't just how I make my living: It's my passion. 

Thimble & Axe is part of a dream I’ve been pursuing since I first used my mom’s sewing machine to try to make my own clothing as a junior in high school.

Since first learning to sew I spent a few years remodeling luxury homes in Chicago, served in the US Army, and after my honorable discharge, used the Post 9-11 GI Bill to earn a BFA in Apparel Design.

I started Thimble & Axe in Portland, OR with my wife in 2018, and we moved to a quiet place on a Washington mountainside in June of 2019. 

Thimble & Axe is a dream I’m pursuing with everything I’ve got, but it wouldn’t be possible without amazing people like you getting behind our brand early on.

I had the privilege of teaching several wilderness survival classes in the Army, and use the knowledge I shared with those Soldiers to create the best possible gear for heading out on your next adventure with confidence. 

Each piece in our line is designed to hold up for years, protect you and your belongings from the elements, and look better with each use. On top of that, we plant one tree for every product we sell, through the non-profit: One Tree Planted

Please feel free to reach out to us any time with questions, comments, concerns, or ideas for new products!

Thank you again for taking interest in our growing business.
