Screwdrivers

After the hammer, screwdrivers are, perhaps, the most basic of tools. Everyone has one, and most people never really think about them. But cabinet makers and carpenters, who have been using screwdrivers since the late Middle Ages, know that a comfortable, well-made tool can make any job easier and more enjoyable. Traditionally, people made their own tools, and whether hastily crafted, or elaborate works of art, they were always made to fit the specific hand and requirements of the user.  Most tools today are manufactured by the thousand, with little or no difference between them. But the satisfaction that comes from doing a job well, with the perfect tool, has not dissipated over time. That is why we were so excited to find these wooden handled screwdriver sets with interchangeable heads. Made by a cabinet maker in England to traditional specifications, they are the only screwdriver you will ever need. The handles are gently curved and cured with linseed oil, which helps preserve and protect the wood as it slowly forms to the contours of your hand each time you use it. We think it is the perfect present.
