Good tools.


Dear Working Hard,

I have mentioned these knives to you before, I think, but I wanted to remind you about them.  It's an absolute wonder that such nice tools are available to us.  You can get one of these handmade knives for about $250.  While you are shopping, consider one of these beautiful leather objects, too.

With these nice tools you get a lot of the hand of the craftsperson, some of their spirit.  These things are made with oodles of attention and great fondness for the materials and methods.  There is a lot of feeling packed into an item you will hold nearly everyday.  You can't go wrong with a handmade tool.

The fellows who make these knives and these leather goods are just as nice a people as you have ever met, to boot.
