Handy Tools by Hand-Eye

View all 6 Photos

Portland’s thriving maker culture has spawned yet another shop that’s turning out high-quality, all-American products; Hand – Eye Supply, a “work-focused supply store for creative minds” embodies a growing trend towards well-made goods that have the potential to last a lifetime – in strict opposition to the ravenous consumer culture of the West. Simple and durable, their six-piece screwdriver set maintains an endearing utilitarian aesthetic that may remind you of your grandfather’s tools. Turned hardwood and USA 8650 Chromium Vanadium steel with a black oxide finish can take on practically any task over a wide range of sizes, including 1/8”, 3/16”, ¼”, and Phillips heads from #0 to #2. Hand-Eye is a firm believer in the purity of design, feeling little should be changed about this traditional device that has been serving us well for centuries; a modest pouch made from thick, durable canvas features a reinforced bottom, YKK zipper, and leather pull to keep your set in one place for many years to come. Keep them in your toolbox, garage, kitchen, or even carry them with you for on-the-go repairs. Not only do they look great, but the screwdrivers are made right here in the US of A – and they’re sure to work better than those fussy interchangeable screw tips you bought the last time you needed to put something together. Who knows – maybe your kids will be using them someday.

​Lizzie Wright is an aspiring artist and designer with a passion for the written word. While she works on her BFA in Industrial Design at the Rhode Island School of Design (RISD), she spends her (rare) spare time riding around Providence on her trusty Cannondale and drinking lots of coffee. She is especially fascinated by the dichotomy between aesthetic form and function, which has an immense influence on her work. As a lover of the natural world, Lizzie plans to focus on Nature, Culture, and Sustainability Studies to pursue a more efficient future for design. Read more by visiting her website
