Whats up everyone? Well I wanted to take the time to share with you cats some pics of the best line of tools I have ever had the pleasure to use! A few months back I met up with Darryl from Blastsheild. To my surprise I met a man that is part of a dying breed {hard working, genuine and dedicated to craftsmanship}. Darryl is as solid as his tools and offers allot that can help with our trade. With the help and support from some the brightest artists in the industry, Darryl offers quality tools, including custom builds plus the best customer service period. look for us at Champs and a we are gonna be doing a demo the last night of A.G.E. where we will introduce our latest addition, our new stickstack tool. Please visit theblastshield.com to check out the full line contact Darryl threw theblastshield.com or myself at my e-mail. Peace
