    Coppersmiths-workshop-1960 Fiskars makes some of the best garden tools on the market and continue to manufacture their products in Finland where they have been making tools for a not inconsiderable 365 years. This wonderful photograph from the 1860s accompanied a recent press release from the company (I’m pretty sure those aren’t satellite dishes on the bridge!). It’s good to know that not everything has been outsourced to China and that a long tradition of manufacturing excellence has not been ditched for a quick buck. Other honourable mentions should go to Felco in Switzerland and Bulldog Tools in the UK.
