Tools are the father of all other antiques. Master paintings, the great statues, the finest pottery, the most decorative furniture, the most colourful tapestries all of these would have been nothing more than someone's momentary idea without the tools needed to create them. Every man-made object depends on the use of tools for its existence, and mankind's greatest creativity and intelligence is reserved for the creation of newer and better mousetraps to solve the production problems of the day. Tools were the first expression of human cognition.
Collecting antique tools is a little like learning chess at first it is a bit confusing as the wide assortment of tools presents itself, then with a small amount of experience you gain confidence in your ability to make the right moves and collect interesting pieces, and as you become more and more the "experienced collector" you begin to realize that there is an ever richer and increasingly interesting realm of knowledge and speciality waiting to be discovered.
