Atwood handmade tools:  “small precious things”

Reader Billy Baque recently pointed me at the blog of knife- and tool-maker Peter Atwood, who seems to be living the Maker dream: Every week or so he makes up a run of one or two dozen of his carefully-designed pocket tools, posts them for sale on eBay, and announces it on his blog. They usually sell out within a day.


I am descended from 5,000 generations of tool-using primates. Also, I went to college and stuff. I am a long-time contributor to MAKE magazine and My work has also appeared in ReadyMade, c't – Magazin für Computertechnik, and The Wall Street Journal.
