The Folding and Adjustable Handle
Draw Knife has a number of advantageous features; it is compact, an 8 inch
knife with handle folded occupying a
space of about 13 x 2i in. The folding
handle protects the blade from injury,
thus saving time in grinding and put-
ting knife in order, and the owner need
have no fear of being cut while looking
for other tools. It is much easier to grind, and the handles can be adjusted in all directions. The blades are formed from solid steel bars, carefully tempered and ground, and are of the very best quality.

ENGLISH TOOL BASKETS.
When a Yankee carpenter has a little job to do a few squares or a few miles from the shop, he takes his tool box with tools (about 30 lbs. of tools, 15, sometimes 25 lbs. of box) shoulders it, and starts off to his work. Now, we do not mean to quarrel with him for doing

The practice of sending goods C. O. D. (Collect On Delivery) is, fortunately, growing less common. It entails extra expense both to the buyer and seller, and usually indicates distrust and suspicion.

Therefore, we will not send goods C. O. D-

this, but would suggest that it was about time to do away with the box business and use a Tool Basket. The middle size weighs about eighteen ounces, and while the difference in weight between the box and basket (from ten to twelve pounds) is not much for a single lift, it certainly makes a very material difference in a walk of a mile or two
This basket can be carried over the shoulder by a stick shoved through both handles, or a piece of sash cord, or when only a few tools are used, it can be carried the same as a valise. The middle size measures when round, about 21 inches in diameter, and when flattened sidewise by the shape and weight of the long tools (as jointer and saws), about 33 inches. They are soft and pliable, very strong, and with fairly decent usage will last for years.
