I had the privilege to meet Norm back in the 90’s and enjoyed a delightful visit and tour of his shop. He also pointed me to the local cemetery where you can see some amazing carved shapes from the local stonecarvers over the years. It was almost surreal! Trow & Holden tools are top of the line and a delight to work with. Thanks for posting this article John!
