Japan Woodworker

A catalog, delivered in the mail, in time for Christmas.  Full of tools.  I like tools, most guys do.  But the prices in this catalog are completely outta sight, even viewed as fancy Christmas gifts.  $200 for a straight razor, set of wood chisels for $1600, those clever Japanese pull saws for $300. 
   Nice stuff, much of it in the black iron, hand forged by blacksmiths look, which isn't as pretty as the stuff from Lee Valley which is all machined, polished, chromed, and generally sharp looking.  And not quite as expensive.
