The name OldToby, is partly derived from the name of a particular kind of pipeweed in J.R.R. Tolkien’s Middle Earth and partly inspired by the Native American scout that helped Lewis and Clark in their epic journey across the American wilderness. Both reference represent the spirit that OldToby seeks to capture. The endless possibilities of imagination and the never ending spirit of exploring and conquering nature.

“King Mountain” is the first product in our catalogue, it is the first story we want to tell.
“King Mountain” is about the peaks, big and small. The peaks that decorate our horizons. It is about the mammoths that call to us, and invite us to to take a view from atop. A grand inspiring gaze into the horizon, and a moment to reflect.
There are peaks for everyone and you don’t have to be a daring explorer and seek to climb the highest peaks of this globe to feel the rush and energy that trekking up a vertical slope provides. Your “King Mountain” can be the mound behind your house, the hilltop outside your town, the highland a few hours away, or the mountain range stretching across the landscape. Perch yourself up there for a moment or two, take a deep breath and let the heights provide peace of mind.
