IS EVENLY DIVIDED
Edges Xitat Last
Probably you have bought edged tools made of steel that
was crumbly, or too soft to hold an edge, or so hard as to
be brittle. You may have bought them for good tools, too.
There b, however, a sure way to pet tools with edges that
last. It is simply to ask for the Keen Kutter Brand when
buying. Keen Kutter Tools have been standard of America
for 36 j-ears, and are in every case the best that brains,
money and skill can produce. They are made of the finest
grades of steel and by the most expert tool makers. As
a complete line of tools is sold under this brand.
