They are, he said, a bargain! You might be able to buy new tools in Poundland for the same price …….. but, from our experience, they don’t last that long ……. and more importantly, mused Nigel, new tools are devoid of any gravitas or mystic …… or that certain tool shed smell.
These tools says Nigel are most probably centuries old and so have a lovely patina about them. What wonderful romantic rustic tales could they could tell of craftsmen and their trusty apprentices fashioning things of wood? He said if he was on Bargain Hunt, he would try and put a bundle together to sell at auction but I know he has an eye on the mallet for himself for driving in the pegs for the tent he had for Christmas. I think I need to suggest he looks for something a little smaller, even if it is from Poundland ……. said mallet could do some serious damage in the wrong hands.
