    Lie Nielsen Special Edition (4 items)

    Guild members, this is a very rare, special tool announcement.  The Guild Estate team is offering the following rare tools on behalf of our estate client.  For a brief time, to our Guild members and local sales only. On Tuesday, May 14, we will advertise to the broader market.  If you are interested, please reply to this Buy/Sell ad.  

    Background.. at the end of the last century, Clarence Blanchard of Fine Tool Journal and Brow's Auctions commissioned Tom Lie-Nielsen to make some very special limited edition tools. They featured white bronze and rosewood and other exotic handles and were limited to 500 copies, after which the molds were destroyed.

    The tools sold for $300-500 back then, but today are worth several times that to collectors. We understand that they also work quite well. 

    The Guild is selling four tool sets (two tiny planes and two pairs of tools) on behalf of an estate assistance client. If you are seriously interested, we can arrange for you to inspect the tools at the Guild Studio.

    Thank you.  

    GoOW Estate Sales Team
