    Man those guys aren't slackers. Wonder how long it took to make that pile behind the grinder?

    Good steel ,and an admirable tempo of work. Nice timing on the hammer work. Makes you wonder what you would do for a living under different circumstances. Tip of the hat to these fellows effort, no time for complaining?

    Agree! But wow! That’s hard on the striker’s back! Don’t want to do that! Looks as though the striker was the finisher?

    I like third world tools. Any ideas what this tool might be used for, apart from being an impractical small shovel with an over designed handle.

    Looks like a scraper, to me, unless it# a cooking utensil. To think of all the work that went into it! How much does a cheap one from China cost there, I wonder?
