Default Blue Spruce Patriotic Set

Guys & Doll,

Dave Jeske had responded to my email wishing him a Happy 4th by wishing me the same and then asking me to look at his "Top Shelf Products" When I went there I saw these beautiful three chisels that were displayed as Red White and Blue. Dave was/is only going to make three or four sets and sent along a very nice certificate of authenticity. All in all a beautiful set.

Fred

Ron,

I sure that many will think it is stupid but patriotism means a lot to me and as you know I also like to support Dave and the rest of amazing tool makers around the world. So, for me, this set was just downright perfect. Very much an emotional purchase rather than a logical one but I am okay dokay with it. Finally, of course, their are three chisels and I have three pups, so duh, I had to buy them.

Fred

Maybe for some but not for those of us that were sworn to make the ultimate sacrifice for our country and our freedom.

Ron,

Thank you and my hat and heart are there for all that made the ultimate sacrifice as well as those that signed on for it.

We always hope that those decision makers at the top respect what every soldier has sworn to give up and that they utilize those oaths wisely.

That includes Fred's chisels. Though I suspect that there are more forgotten than he'd like admit...

Pigglydoo,

My chisels are neither gone, nor forgotten. But just to be sure, I have savage guard dogs guarding these tools with everything that have including their lives. So, just try to break in here and you will find DBL. DBL is a horrible, horrible way to die and it is messy as well. What is DBL, why Death by Licking of course.

Fred

DBL isn't so bad. With Wally you'd get DBNIC - Death By Nose in Crotch.
