A very short book that gives the reader a lot to think about Even when the metal tool heads were purchased for instance from the local blacksmith and into the industrial era people made their own handles meaning there were not merely regional variations but variations between families living in the same neighborhood I was also intrigued at how late some developments came about and how different some common tools looked hammers or axes for instance well into the middle of the nineteenth century
