Bike Tools as Art

With three Eno Freewheels floating around on various single speed wheelsets these days, I finally picked up a White Industries freewheel removal tool. I love the heft and precision of it. While it has a narrow and specific utility, I’m reminded that a well made tool can evoke the type of emotion one experiences when connecting with a piece of art. I scanned through old hugger posts and enjoyed reading about Mark’s obscure headset tool, and “Pro Tool Super,” and I thought I’d open this up to the forum again. What are your favorite tools, and why?
