Chris Schwarz has some very interesting thoughts in this area in his latest book. Basiclly he is evangelizing the idea of building quality items that will last a life time. You build them specifically to meet your needs. This is in contrast to buying mass produced goods, that do not necessarly meet your needs and are desgned to become obsolete/require replacement in a relatively short period of time. He applies the same principles to his selection of tools. The book is a very interesting read even if your not a hand tools person.
