Tool Guides

We spend a lot of time here at Garrett Wade thinking about tools. Over the years, in addition to bringing you the finest products from around the world, we've also written extensively about the tools we offer, the stories behind them, and advice on how to get the most out of using them.

In this section you'll find a selection of that writing, broken into two parts: Technique & Overviews, and Instructions. We hope you find this section useful. We'll keep adding to it, so keep checking back.

We'd love to hear your questions and comments on what we've covered here, as well as your suggestions for topics you'd like us to cover. Please email our tech department at:
