Wow! Such imaginative tools. Those hammers are amazing. I'd be afraid to use them. The prices seem quite reasonable.

I've never heard of snakewood before. Quite the grain pattern.

Laurie needs the squirrel hammer. Not sure, though, if that's actually meant to hammer squirrels

Very nice stuff! I have a couple pieces of snakewood, but htey are very small more for a jewelry box handle. Surprised he's got a good supplier that can get him such nice pieces for handles. The stuff is crazy hard, too.

Wow, thanks for posting that Derek. I personally have a bit of a hammer fetish in my collection of antique tools.

This guy seems prolific! Good stuff.
