Hand tools, no matter how small and insignificant has played a part in some craftsman life. It is easy to take these nonimpact, unimportant "cogs" of a working day, put them on a shelf and forget about them. I feel that is unfair. This small part plays a big part in a families life; it provided the need task to receive money to feed a family, send a child to school, making life that much rewarding, no matter how small of part it played.
This will be the focus of my next piece, Box Knife.
