Founded in 1998, Vesper Tools is a one man business with a passion for making the highest quality and best value for money woodworking hand tools available in the world, based in Melbourne, Australia.
"I utilize beautiful timber and metals to produce unsurpassed quality tools. It is impossible online to convey the feeling of quality and heft of these tools, but we can assure you many customers regularly contact us about the unexpected quality when their order arrives".
The quality of finish and attention to detail achieved on every tool is only possible through highly skilled hand workmanship.
When something is clearly going to outlast you, then surely the sooner you buy it the longer you get to enjoy it.
Vesper Tools quality is a rare thing in our plastic and disposable world.
We also stock several other complimentary brands and products:

- Glen Drake Tite-Mark marking gauges and accessories. The original and the best!

Vesper Tools was started by Chris Vesper in 1998, and in 2020 after 22 years of business (full time since Sept 2003) it still remains a small one man, highly specialized business producing the best quality low volume tools humanly possible.
