I have been wanting to make a video on why I love the most expensive carpenter hand tools for awhile now, and thankfully, I met up with Mark Martinez at the JLC Live show in Providence, Rhode Island to do just that. You guys have been asking for a toolsday in regards to the Martinez tools I am always using, so who better to do it with than the man himself.
Hammers are $224, square is $250. Just putting that out there right now. What I love about the system is it modularity. You can buy into the titanium system and put multiple different heads on the same titanium handle. With the square, the shoe is removable, which means future innovations. Beyond that, what I really like to watch, is how excited Mark is when he comes up with something new, and uses the power of social media and the community to bounce back ideas. He listens to the guys in the field in order to make the best tools possible.
Mark is probably one of the nicest guys that I have met in the tool industry, and trust me, he doesn’t need to be out selling tools at shows. He originally developed Stiletto Tools back in the day and sold it to TTI which is the parent company for Milwaukee Tools. After about 8 years being away from the business, he couldn’t stay away any longer, so he made it his mission to come out with some killer titanium hand tools in order to help out guys in the trade.
Pretty fortunate to Call Mark my friend, so yes, this is a glowing promotion or recommendation for anyone in the trades that uses these specific tools daily to check them out.
If you’d like to support me, below are various ways to help!
