Have you ever taken a look around your workshop to see where all your tools come from? My shop looks like a United Nation of tools! Many of my tools are vintage, specialty tools, which means they have travelled the globe to make it to my work bench. Plus, I am super picky about quality, and today's tools seem to be missing that same quality of our grandfather's tools. That's not to say quality tools are not made today(see the Klien Tools logo below. These are the pliers I carry at my side every day!), it's just that my vintage tools, with their traveling and history, have that certain... je ne sais quoi.
