1) How do I order?
Just sent me a mail in the address at top right column of my blog or leave a comment here letting me know which tools you are interested in.
b)Or head over to my ETSY SHOP and see what tools are in stock. Buying the tools from etsy gives you minimum preparation time and thus much faster dispachment.
Note – Etsy tool listings show tools that are “ready or almost ready” for dispachment, not availability. If the tool you’re interested in isn’t currently listed on Etsy you can still order it here!
2) How much time does it take for the tools to be prepared?
The tools are made upon request. It usually takes 2 weeks after payment is received. However that time may vary depending on the complexity of the ordered tools and the current time schedule.

3) I live in … Do you ship there? How long will it take for my order to arrive?

The tools can be shipped to anywhere around the globe. I ship them in registered safe packaging. They usually reach their destination within 2 weeks.

All the tools are hand finished and come in quality handturned wooden handles that are treated (instead of varnished) to endure heat and extensive use.

“Because they want the tools they make
 to be beautiful besides useful.
 They want them to say
 who made them
 and who used them.”
     From a Tool Museum in Athens.
