Includes ice picks, gardening tools, trowels, asparagus and weed cutters, screwdrivers, etc. Tools named SoHoCo turn up here and there. Their carpenter's squares, particularly the take-down squares are nice pieces of work, particularly if you can find one of the copper washed ones. Take a look at the try squares. Very similar to Stanley, aren't they?
