Today's Featured Tool Description

Bridgeport Hardware Mfg. Co., The : Forged Claw Hatchet. "Shinola" Advertisin. Uncommon Type. Length: 13.50 Inches. An ADVERTISING HATCHET by the Bridgeport Hardware Company marked with advertising for "Shinola" brand shoe polish. Having made a commitment, for the preservation of the high standards of this publication, not to make an obvious, tasteless and scatological joke regarding the advertiser on this hatchet and the capacity of some folks to distinguish between shoe polish and other forms of matter, we will refrain from saying anything that even alludes to such commentary. An unusual advertising claw hatchet that was probably given out for use in the shipping room. No Shinola. (GOOD+). This item was sold on July 22, 2001 for $65.00. jpg_file
