For this #cooltooltuesday I have here four fleamarketfinds from Sweden. These I found this summer on my trip up to Kiruna. The thing is - I can not remember where exactly I bought these 😁 Might have been Näsbyn or Töre or... Anyway, pictured here are four pliers of excellent quality, no makers marks but still some clues of who has made them.
The larger sidecutters are marked with "Made in Sweden" so this one is Bahco. The smaller sidecutters have no markings but the design gives it away, this one is Lindström. Then there are two small end nippers that I do not recognise. But they are also of high quality, smooth box joint and perfect alignment of cutting surfaces. One has a small bevel and the other has a full flush cut.
All found at the same place, all unused and all not finished. Seems like these were pulled from the production line before plastic handles were put on.
Any guesses of who has made the small nippers?
Coincidental as holiday packing with no hold has the side effect to enable an experiment: #fall10x10 for me, who (apart from when traveling) struggles to live with a #capsulewardrobe and as I forgot to picture the shoes I am not even sure if I am on the right track... my #slowfashionoctober ideas and changes to my own wardrobe are slow... and I will carry on working on the found-in-the-street shirts quilt :)
