All of us at TTAK would like to wish our readers a very Merry Christmas. I am sitting here watching the end of my first yearly screening of A Christmas Story and basking in the light of the tree. The presents are out, including my 6 year old daughter’s first Red Ryder. I thought about a Leatherman Leap for her, but I didn’t want to cannibalize the significance of her first (quasi) firearm. So the Leap will wait for her next birthday. Thing 2 is a month shy of 4, and while he is not getting any tools of his own this year, he has started to use knives and even made several ornaments with the band-saw this Christmas.
It may be too obvious of a question, but I am going with it anyway.
Is there any steel under your tree this year? Is it a gift to or from you?
