Catharsis for the Conspicuous Consumer: Hand Tools

After my scissor round-up, I've somehow found myself interested in a whole host of lovely tools.  I've said it before, but there's just something so nice about a mundane object that has been designed simply and beautifully. Obviously, there's something to be said for improvements made to many tools over time, but why reinvent something as simple as a hammer or an awl, right?  What do you think?

Well Designed Tools

ONE/awl  TWO/survival tool  THREE/carpenter pencils  FOUR/folding ruler
