Owners, Jose and Sam, first met in 2017 while serving in the Marine Corps Embassy Security Group program at US Embassy Podgorica, Montenegro. 3 years later, they were inspired by their visit to FXBG Axes, with their fellow Marines from their former detachment. During the midst of the Covid-19 outbreak, Jose and Sam decided to roll the dice and formed their company together and chose Scranton, PA as the perfect spot in need of axe throwing. Construction began in early 2021 and our doors finally opened on July 31st, 2021. We've found the community in Lackawanna,\ PA to be extremely welcoming and helpful. Every review posted, photo shared, and story told is an extreme help to us in our mission to provide a fun and exciting new sport to the area that will help bring our community together. Thank you to our wonderful supporters!
