I hereby present the code of ethics of the Northmen’s Guild.
Northmen Guild was founded in 2017. It is defined as follows  :
“We are a guild of northern master craftsmen who use our heritage of craftsmanship handed down through many generations to design and create woodworking tools, knives, weapons – bows and swords, leather goods and watches. Our process, our method and mission is to keep these traditions and crafts alive and well. In this high-tech age, our own traditional craftsmanship is flourishing.
We use our hands to create things that will live on, telling their story in the hands of the craftsmen and people after us. Each thing we create is born with energy and personality – a love and care that will be felt daily by each craftsman; a resonance from the heart of the creation.

At first glance, this Northmen Guild’s Code of Ethics has nothing to do with the martial arts, yet it really resonates with me. To a certain extent, it reminds me of the values found in certain codes of martial virtue, such as Bushido or Wing Chun Jo Fen.
More than that, it’s a code for living. Simple and rich at the same time. It’s all there.
