Default Blue Spruce Chisels

I was speaking with Peter today and he mentioned that someone had spoken about the article in Fine Woodworking on the Blue Spruce chisels. I do NOT have the bench chisels that were shown but holy moly they were beautiful. Oh, but John, I do have the Blue Spruce paring chisels, two of his marking knives and two of his mallets. Dave makes absolutely incredible tools and he will be out her in October for the Hand Tool Event. He is staying with a friend in Malvern but if that falls through he will be staying with all of us at my house. I also have two of his t-shirts. He could not be a nicer person and I would love to see his shop which is apparently his garage with half of it being metal working and the other half woodworking. Amazing man and I am really looking forward to meeting him.

Fred

Okami,

Wow, you are a wimp. I use my Tasai to clean up my concrete blocks when I have too much hardened cement and then also to crack the rocks for my rock wall. My Blue Spruce are the paint can openers. Stick with me fella and I will show ya around the chisel and plane woild.

Fred

PS Isn't nice to have John putting the Blue Spruce on his wait list? Of course a real man would have bought them but........
