Yes some of it in the Blue Point & Proto Range, but a large amount of the high end stuff is still made in the USA by American workers .
If you use hand tools daily like I do, you quickly know & learn which is the best to buy.
In my three roll arounds ,my hand tools are MOSTLY Made in USA, or Made in the UK, Made in Germany and many of the specialty stuff is made in France by Facom.

As a PS

Making your own.


17 year old son and I have been spending time together learning to do some backyard blacksmithing. Lot of fun. First pair of tongs. Learning to make the tools used to make the tools.
