Keep your eyes safe on the job without looking like a tool with Milwaukee Gunmetal Safety Glasses ($10).

When is an axe more than an axe? When it's a work of art. Best Made Axes ($200-$550) achieve this status by being hand forged and tempered by one of America's oldest axe companies, and then paired to handles made of 30-inch American hardwood, which are then hand painted and polished. For added collectibility, pair one with a custom made, felt-lined Best Made Box.
Give your car a showroom shine with the Makita Sander-Polisher ($200). This nine-pound polisher features a variable speed dial that runs from 600-3,000 rpm, letting you go from slow buffing to aggressive polishing in the turn of a dial. Of course, it's also easily converted into a sander, helping you to re-stain that deck or fence in no time.
