Favorite Xmas gift? Grandpa’s folding ruler.

My desk...Got a lot of great gifts this Christmas. A great hat from 10 Engines, a card case from Billykirk (above), a cool Filson vest, a Wii, and (as usual) a bunch of home runs from my wife. She’s a world class gift giver.

But my favorite gift from my parents was easily my grandfather’s folding ruler (pictured above). I’d seen a ton of these online and had often considered buying myself one, but this one is so much better. According to my mother, my grandpa–born in 1908–inherited this from his uncle. With that in mind, we could easily be looking at over a century of use. More detailed view after the jump…
