Great findings Teo, as always!The smoother face older tools have acquired through time/use is a great characteristic which allows great impressions when tooling. Tools have memory, they "remember" what they're supposed to do after a while and continuous use gives them a shape more suited to their purpose as time goes by.On the other hand nothing beats the feeling of getting to hold a brand new shinny decorative tool!I'm sure the tools, old and new, have found a great home!Ps1-Any news on that lead font guy?Ps2-Is there a way of subscribing to you besides FB? I don't (note won't) have an account!
Hi Dimitris! I really love my stylus set and got used with the handle shape perfectly. I wish now all my tools had that type of handle. And the wood is so beautiful!I went to visit the guy with the letterpress types but he was not ready to sell yet. I'm not giving up though :) I'm going back in a few weeks. I took photos and I'll post them on the blog soon. I have no idea how you can subscribe, maybe add me to your reading list in Google reader or some similar feature in wordpress? I'm really behind with all these... FB is definitely a struggle!
Great finds! Can you put up pics with the faces of the tools, for greater detail? I even collect photos of tools, both old and new!
Oh, wow! So nice... I know how it feels to get new tools for your craft. Congrats, looking forward to see what you make with them!
