Have you ever taken a look around your home or workshop to see where all your tools originated from? My shop looks like a United Nation of tools! Many of my tools are vintage specialty tools, which have traveled time and the globe to end up on my work bench. I am super picky about the quality of the tools I use every day, and many modern tools do not meet my standards. This is not to say there are no quality tools made today(see the Klien Tools logo below. These are the pliers I carry at my side every day!), it's just that vintage tools, with their traveling and history, have a certain... je ne sais quoi.
