I woke up to find these on the dinning room table…

A 12 piece set of Pfeil chisels with my name laser monogramed on them.
OMG.. I am super excited to get to the studio today and test them out… WOO HOOO…
I have often on here gone on how one can use most anything to carve with…mostly because I make almost no money and use what ever metal tools I can find. I have only a few really great chisels.. I AM SO EXCITED!!!

I love Pfiel carving tools. I try to buy a couple each month but it doesn’t always work out. Congratulations.

HB to you in a big way! I know several people with “JorgensEn” tools, but only one with “Eric P. JorgensOn” tools! Congrats and enjoy!

EP, it’s always great to get some of these as a gift no matter what the occasion is. These tools are so nice and well made they will last more than a lifetime if you care for them. I’ll give you some advice – Pfiel tools are going to go up in price as time goes on and if you want to add to your collection the best way to do it is to add one or two more every so often. Happy Birthday and enjoy them.

Jealous. Hey… I have a birthday coming up soon… okay, not so soon, but I could sure hope for something like that. I’m lucky to get a card! Looking forward to seeing how you put those to use. Congrats!
