110 Folding Hunter Knife
Matt's favorite, classic, everyday carry knife. This 110 Folding Hunter Knife is a beauty with 420HC steel and a ebony and brass handle. It comes with a black leather sheath, AND you can add personalized laser engraving starting at just $9 to make it extra special. Plus...it's from BUCK. Become a part of the Buck Knives family - they offer a forever warranty and have proven themselves since 1902. EVERYONE should have a Buck knife. Check out all the cool stuff on this site!
Prybrid X Utility Knife
If you know Matt and Chris, you'll know they're never without their Prybrids. As a matter of fact, they may have even given you one! This hybrid tool from Gerber is a utility knife and multi tool all in one. It's the perfect knife to keep on you at all times, and a great gift for your spouse, college kid, co-workers, etc., to do the same. It's a fantastic gift idea to buy in multiples for the "extra gifts" you might need because it works for everyone! Check this out (and so much more) here on the Gerber site!
Sawdust Tool Roll
Matt actually did a Sunday video on the utility of this Howler Bros. Tool Roll. Plenty of room, pockets and compartments to fit all your standard tools. It LOOKS cool, it's sturdy (waxed canvas) and takes up a lot less space and weight that a standard tool box. Stop looking for the hammer, the right screwdriver, box cutter, etc....it's all packed away right in this rollable, packable, hangable bag. Perfect for keeping all your guitar shop tools separate and easy to locate when you're working on a project. Also, check out the cool clothes and the music section under "Howlerverse." Shop here!
Classic Legendary Bottle
You can't go wrong with a Classic. I think even my grandpa carried this to work every day. Stanley has been around since 1913! For over a hundred years, this cool company has remained classic, yet still innovative. They not only have kept the traditional vacuum bottles at the helm of their product line, but they've added realllllly cool barware, campware and everyday sustainable, reusable products that reduce the disposables that end up in our waste and water streams. A lifetime guarantee AND the ability to personalize for anyone on your list, including the young'uns who have made this a social media GIANT.
RadRover Electric Fat Tire Bike (big sale on this model NOW!)
Rad Power Bikes
Our friends JJJ and Leslie, (and Todd and Stacia, and Sean and Tina, etc.....) turned us on to this eBike world and it's SO much fun. We actually took these bikes out to Wyoming to ride around the open area and trails and it's a blast to really be able to explore and actually be able to get up them there hills. The battery lasts about 45-50 miles, and can go about 20mph without pedaling, which is legal limit. Free shipping and a one year warranty, these bikes provide super fun transport whether you're commuting, exploring or just having fun. It's a bit irresistable and addictive. Cheaper than a car for the college kid!
"Making a Living from Woodwork"
Not too long ago, Nigel Forster, himself, shared this book with us. Man, what a great book this is! I wish I would have had this when I first started out. For amateurs and professionals alike, this book goes beyond just the physical makeup of your woodshop, but deals with things like time management, distractions, forums, cleaning the workshop, saying no, energy sinks....see? Al the things that make this whole thing manageable. For $20, this book is a gem to keep in your digital library. 110 pages of finding a middle ground between the art of craft and "all that other stuff..."
Luthier Tools and Supplies
"Our promise to you is simple and uncomplicated. If any of our products ever break, wear out, or fail to exceed your every expectation simply return it for a replacement." I don't know, man...I think that says it all. Quality. For life. Shop tools are a cost, for sure. But I'd rather have a product that I KNOW the company stands behind and will replace it for free, for life. If you want to make a business out of guitar building, or just want the best tools at hand, this is the place to go. We've always said, we have purchased from here for years before they knew who we were....and we'd continue to purchase from here, even if they didn't't. Great tools are a great gift.
