A few images from my archives of over 4000 pictures of billhooks taken from auction sites such as eBay or Leboncoin, my collection, or from other peoples' collections at steam rallies such as the Great Dorset Steam Fair
Some Hungarian 'metsökés' or vine pruning hooks bought at the tool fair in Bièvres in France in 2010. Held on May 1st every year. Bièvres is about 30km south of Paris. 'La Foire d'Outils' is run by the local tool club, Les Amis de l'Outil ( LADO ), who also have an excellent museum of old tools in the village. The fair attracts sellers and buyers from all over Europe.
