7 antique awls gouges woodcarving leather- $44

The longest of these seven antique hand tools is 6 ½”, and the shortest is 3⅜”, so the grouping with mellow wooden handles is ideal to place in a bowl on your coffee table. Guests can’t resist holding and fiddling with them. However, if they start jabbing one another, you can take them away.

A jazz musician everyone in his unit of the Army Air Corp called “Windy” fell in love with antique tools of all kinds. I’m not sure exactly when he began collecting, but it was some time after his jazz band was the entertainment at the officers club at Offutt AFB. General Curtis Lemay was the biggest hog a that trough.
