Hida Tool & Hardware Company – New Web Site
August 29, 2012 Comments Off on Hida Tool & Hardware Company – New Web Site
One of the most respected Japanese tool dealers in this or any other country is Hida Tool & Hardware Company in Berkeley, CA. I visited their modest storefront last year and wrote a short post about it here. Their web site was always modest as well, and mostly served to give a simple listing of their tools. To place an order, you had to call them directly. I didn’t mind this, as it added a personal touch that we don’t often get anymore. Apparently they have been working hard behind the scenes because I just noticed they have completely revamped their web site. And you can now order all their tools online. It looks like some things are still a work in progress, but the new site looks great. The next time you are in the Bay Area you should still stop by, though. There is nothing like being able to pick up and hold a tool with your own hands.
