Your father sounds like a hardened, old school shop guy. Like the men I have been around for the last 10 years. But I agree, it tends to be the reaction I get in the locker room at work. Fancy boy, fonzie can tend to be the names they call me, all in good fun. But the funny thing is i'm straight as an arrow, 200 lbs with 8'' suit drop and more than capable of killing them with my bare hands ha ha. Different strokes I guess......thats not the worst of it. I'm also fully...

But last night I scooped a pair of New Standards for $116 out the door up here in Canada at Holt Renfrew "last call". I've size down 2 (because 1 down was not available).

Thats an awesome shot! Are you in a band or DJ/perform solo? Any links to your music?
Yah knipex is great stuff. great fit and finish.
Thanks very much. A lot of years gathering them. And too much money...
Hey Guys, I know this SF is dominated by office workers (for obvious reasons). I just want to see how many of you work with your hands for a living or just for fun. Do you work on cars, with leather, landscape, work with wood etc? Post up pics of what you do/ what you work on/ the tools you use. I'm a Hydraulics tech. Our shop works on mobile and industrial hydraulic sytems and related components. I also have my tickets in MIG and TIG welding. I know greasy hands...
