If you are looking for a gift, all of my books sold through Lost Art Press are signed by me (a few of them inadvertently in blood, thanks to my sharp pocket knife). You can see all the signed books here.
Honestly, when I want to give someone a gift that will change the way they work, I give them one of our curved Crucible Card Scrapers. These are so much easier to use than a rectangular scraper.
Or I give them one of our waist aprons. I haven’t been able to wear mine out. It is the first thing I reach for when I head to the bench each day.
Anyway, this isn’t supposed to be a gift guide (we’ve already got one of those). Just trying to save you a little money on shipping (and get rid of excess inventory).
