Yes, so many great old names from the past. I remember getting some of these catalogs and also the first time to set foot into Garrett Wade’s grand HQ (not haha!) in lower Manhattan. And Kayoko from Misugi Design is still around and a wonderful friend to a few people on here. She would literally visit craftspeople in Japan to handpick a special natural stone or hand tool. At least now, there are so many great craftspeople and boutique tool makers who do fine work and we have access to via the internet.

Thanks.
Kevin
