Today I am flying to Venice, Italy to attend Irwins product launch media event. Ten publishers were invited, nine print and me. What an honor!
Irwin is planning a release of a new line of IRWIN Marples Woodworking Series saw blades that are expecting to be a “game changer” for the woodworker and finish carpenter.
That is was my first thought too. Apparently Irwin owns or has a relationship with a saw manufacturing plant in Venice. I’ve always know that italian masonry blades were considered among the best – why not wood blades!
Part of this trip involves a Venetian architecture tour of Murano, Torcello and Burano. One side trip that I am looking forward to is to visit and see how a Venetian gondola is made at the gondola workshop of Squero San Trovaso.
I promise to be posting to Face book and to publish at least one AConcordCarpenter and ToolBoxBuzz.com website post while there so you’l be one of the first to see and hear about the new saw blade line.
