About Us Page
Since the early 1900's we stood fairs and markets accross the UK, selling hand tools and cutlery all made in Sheffield. Back then, fairs and markets were far and few. People saved up their money over a year to spend on the annual fair.
We then went into wholesaling our hand tools in the 1950's and in the 70's starting importing from all over the world. In 1997 we took the name TOOLMAN and applied it to quality tools that we thought was good enough to bear the name and we registered it as a trademark in 2008..
TOOLMAN is based in Sheffield, England. We are still a family business, bringing you good quality TOOLMAN products that are mostly manufactured in and around Sheffield England. Other tools are from other quality tool making countries (USA, Canada, Germany etc.). Everything is made by skilled craftsmen with many years of experience under their belts. They have produced some of the finest woodworking tools, made in their own countries tradition.
As we are still primarily still a wholesale company, we do not sell 'over the counter' and are strictly mail order only.
