Founded by Joseph Lodge in 1896. Lodge is the oldest family-owned cookware foundry in America.
Nestled alongside the Cumberland Plateau of the Appalachian Mountains is the town of South Pittsburg, Tennessee (population 3,300). Yet out of this tiny community comes the finest cast iron cookware in the world. Lodge Cast Iron began making cookware during the first presidential term of William McKinley. Amazingly, some of the first cast iron skillets,griddles and dutch ovens made over 100 years ago are still being put to good use.

A Confederate isn’t just a motorcycle — it’s an implement of battle, designed to assault the very ground it treads. These bikes are made of aircraft-grade billet-aluminum and carbon-fiber chassis components, massive Brembo brakes, jackhammer-like 120 cubic-inch v-twin engines, and truck-like 240 mm rear meats. They have names like “Hellcat,” “Fighter,” and “Wraith.” And they are tough – so tough, in fact, that head designer Ed Jacobs says you’ll have it “forever”:
And did I mention that they’re badass? Feast your eyes on this clip. If you’re not inspired — or at least a little scared — by this menacing American groundpounder, you have no soul:
Still don’t believe me? In 2007, Confederate entered the AMD World Championship of Custom Bike Building (Production Manufacturer Class). The Wraith and the Hellcat took first and second place, respectively.
