Hand Tool Month Competition

We're celebrating the beauty of hand tools this month at Axminster.

We know there are machines out there that can make things quicker, and for some of us, dare we say it, better? However, is there anything more rewarding and beautiful than creating a dovetail joint with the aid of some quality hand tools? We think not. So, why not share us your favourite hand tool for your chance to win over £150 of Shokunin Japanese Saws.
