“The Aeronaut is handmade at Tom Bihn’s Seattle factory. What difference does that make? I’m guessing a lot. When the owner/designer pays his workers a living wage, can walk through the factory and call his employees by name, can inspect the materials as they come in and the products as they go out – that has to make a huge difference in quality. And quality of construction and material is evident when you handle the Aeronaut.”
