A serious answer to your question:

Japanese gardening tools are really amazing. Wonderful to work with, expensive, nicely designed. Not exactly the same as a Jesse James or an Arlen Ness motorcycle but definitely "cool." You should check out Hida Tool in Berkeley. They have a website. And, no, I don't work for them. I just buy some tools from them from time to time.
