I m continuously fascinated by the way different cultures face the same problems with the same basic tool chests, yet come up with such different ways to do things. Although each culture comes up with perfectly suitable solutions, it s incredible to see the basic differences that you never even knew could be altered. Just like the pull vs push saws, or the differences in steel used in tools such as chisel – not to mention the different chisels you find in Japan that we never see here. It’s a real testament to human ingenuity.
