the use of our hands

Pin It

The Damsel recently came across this website: Neeman Tools. She loves everything about this, and especially its philosophy:

“It is a tragedy of the first magnitude that millions of people have ceased to use their hands as hands. Nature has bestowed upon us this great gift which is our hands. If the craze for machinery methods continues, it is highly likely that a time will come when we shall be so incapacitated and weak that we shall begin to curse ourselves for having forgotten the use of the living machines given to us by God.”
Mahathma Ghandi

She hopes you enjoy it and most of all, that you are inspired by it.

There once was a video embedded on this spot, but since the video link broke and refuses to be repaired, here is the link to watch it: Handmade

The Damsel guarantees your satisfaction in making that extra click. So. Worth. It.

      Good question…I wondered that too…but perhaps it was the beeswax. Still, I don’t know why.

        I’m pretty sure that it is as a finish, to seal the metal and prevent corrosion
