Ekoxe bootjack black
Ekoxe is Swedish for stag beetle, but seems ideally suited to this exotic and dare we say it, slightly creepy, bootjack designed by Oskar Karlsson in the early twentieth century. A keen entomologist Karlsson collected a specimen stag beetle during national service in Karlskrona. Taking it home to his foundry he used this as inspiration for the tooling of a bootjack. Now produced to the original pattern of wholly recycled aluminium in Anderstorp by Essem Design.
