Update (1/14 9:45am): Grab 15% off at Bison Made with promo code 9to5Mac during checkout.

It all started with vintage shaving products for two friends, Sebastian Sanderius and Matthew Disarcik. Enamored with the design of these testosterone wielding devices, the pair began collecting them some time ago. Then, they started to refurbish and sell them online, a hobby that eventually turned into a full fledged business. The venture spurred so much success and interest that it created a foundation for another company.

Thus, Bison Made was born. A small company out of Phoenix, Arizona creating perfectly crafted accessories for men and their devices. From a fundamentally sound iPhone 6 wallet, to the strikingly precise Straight Razor, Bison Made has everything to make you re-think your whole accessory collection.
