Great pride, workmanship and the finest materials have always gone into C.S. Osborne’s tools. Towards the turn of the century (1900 that is), the company would exhibit it’s tools at major international fairs including the Philadelphia Centennial in 1876, the Exposition Universelle International in Paris 1878, and the 1881 International Exhibition in 1881 in Melbourne, Australia. It was not uncommon for C.S. Osborne to take home the gold medal when exhibiting at such competitions.
To this day, C. S. Osborne & Co. puts the same craftsmanship into its leather working tools as it has in the past. The company controls the entire manufacturing process from forging the raw steel to hand-sharpening the final cutting edge, and does so one tool at a time, piece by piece. It is this dedication to making the finest quality hand tools that continues to drive and inspire C.S. Osborne & Co. into its next 100 years.
