Often when I look at goods I've bought or acquired, I find myself considering only the tools that shaped and made them. The reality is, things worth having often have very little to do with the tools that physically formed them, and everything to do with the hands that held the tools.
I got a chance to shoot with Jon of Benchkraft a few days ago. He's a fellow Boulderite (I prefer Bouldarian) and a passionate maker here in town. I highly suggest you check out his stuff and keep an eye on this company over the next several months.
