Old Tool Makers: Lindstrom

Below, my pair of  "Genuine Lindstrom" pliers which, for some reason unknown to me, are also stamped "S & S":

F.E. Lindström invented wire cutters in the mid-1850's and founded Lindstrom Precision Tools in Eskilstuna, Sweden in 1856.  At first, the customer base was dominated by watchmakers and jewelry makers, but the electronic, aerospace and medical fields now comprise the largest part of their marketplace.   The Lindstrom Brand is now owned by SNAEurope, the successor to Bahco AB, part of the Snap-on, Incorporated conglomerate.
