Hand Tools History

Hand tools have been around since the stone age when rocks were used for hammering and cutting. Since bronze was harder and sharper than stone “it” or the casting molds revolutionized the industry. During the industrial revolution 1940s, these tools went from hand-made one at a time to mass produced. The iron age replaced the bronze due to its much stronger, durable and lighter. The Romans are known for producing the array of hand tools we see today first. The most extensive collection of British hand tools dating from 1700 – 1950 are in the St. Albans Museum in Vermont. The tools were collected by Raphael Salaman, who wrote two books on the subject. A hand tool is a tool powered by hand strength, not by a motor.

Workshop 5 Blue Grip Channellocks

Hand tools are made up of wrenches, pliers, cutters, planes, scrapers, files, specialty, veneering tools, picture framing, magnetic pickup, striking tools, draw knives, mallets, spokeshaves, hammers, screwdrivers, vises, clamps, carving, chisels, hand saws, drills, and knives. Hand tools handles since hands are so hard on them are often protected in a soft colored gel. We feel that the actual softness of these hand tools should be this year’s focus for hand tool product designers with their softworks programs. Tools like garden forks, rasps, running sheers and rakes are other forms of hand tools.
