Februrary 2009 Monthly Round Up for Tool Snob

Thumbnail image for Thumbnail image for Roundup.jpgDuring the course of most months, we review one, two, maybe three products, if we're lucky. This past month, the shortest of the year, we reviewed eight new products. That's one review every 3.5 days, or to put it in clearer terms: one review every 302,400 seconds. We looked at everything from a new recip saw blade to an interesting little flashlight (and let us not forget the Spout Popper!). Of all the products we looked at though, the HK1 Hydrokinetic Wrench stood out on the merits of its usefulness and innovation, and for those reasons it's the February Tool of the Month.

We also celebrated our two year anniversary on the 19th, and to mark the event wrote up a little retrospective (here), collecting some of the more interesting items we've posted during our tenure.

In the coming month look for reviews of two new utility knifes, the new Cadex brad nailer, and an intriguing new carpenter's pencil (could it be better than the SuperPencil?). But before we get too far ahead of ourselves, here's a look back at February...
