After 150 years in the tool business, Lincolnshire, IL-based Klein Tools hasn’t lost its commitment to quality %%MDASSML%% or its sense of humor.

As part of the company’s sesquicentennial celebration, Klein Tools has created a T-shirt with the 150th anniversary logo on the front. On the back, the short reads, “My Tool is 150 years old… and still works!”

Klein Tools was founded in Chicago in 1857 by blacksmith Mathais Klein. Today the company makes more than 3,800 different hand tools for a variety of applications.
