    Dang that's sweet. Between my brother, father and myself, we have a bunch of my grandfathers old tools. They are probably from the 50's as well, though a couple we know are from the 30's. I still use my grandfathers round and scoop shovels to this day, though definitely not as much as he did.

    Barney I definitely appreciate your craftsman ship (top notch) and your passion for working with these tools but I find your knowledge of their history to be sincerely amazing.

    Thanks, Ed, I appreciate that!
    I guess I got interested in the history of hand tools because you couldn't get a good one after the 70's.
