If you ever thought about of the existence of a “Hand Tool Paradise”, I think “Bridge City Tool Works” is the closest to that.
John Economaki established Bridge City Tool works in 1983 and has been making some of the most beautiful crafted hand tools I have ever seen. Actually, I will be keen to get a second mortgage to acquire some of them.
Their tools are made in limited quantities and based on pre-orders. Make sure you visit their website, but be careful or you could finish spending a lot of money. This is definitely “Shelf Candy”...
Enjoy - cheers, Gaston
