Yes, they're "a thing". Traditionalhandtools.com and it’s singular traditionalhandtool.com, together, are ideally suited for serving the growing movement within woodworking of woodworkers choosing to work with traditional hand tools, such as hand planes, spokeshaves, chisels, coping saws, draw knives, hand saws, travishers, azes, rasps and braces rather than expensive, dangerous power tools such as table saws and jointers. These traditional hand tools, when new, are not inexpensive. New hand crafted hand planes, saws, and axes sell for hundreds of dollars. These are woodworkers who enjoy working wood with their hands rather than simply pushing buttons on machines. Market participants are serious makers of handmade fine furniture as well as a huge number enthusiasts who enjoy feeling the feel of hands on tool and tool on wood while making their own furniture and carvings. Given that these people don't use table saws, I’d like to point out, that they can too.
