As you might already know, we have an affiliate arrangement with Amazon and other retailers, where purchases made through certain links usually earn a small commission for ToolGuyd.
Out of curiosity, I created an end-of-year report, to see which were the most popular 25 tool and related product purchases among ToolGuyd readers and visitors.
The data is somewhat (extremely) flawed, and so what the report usually shows is which deals or deal posts were most popular.
I find the data interesting, and hope you feel the same.
For instance, Mora knife deals always seem to be popular. I would have thought my affinity for fixed-blade knives wouldn’t be shared by many readers, but apparently you guys thought the deal was as good as I did.
Here’s the list:

I considered highlighting the items that I have purchased for personal use, but that ended up being 18 of the 25 items. If you include review samples that I continue to use and recommend, that number increases to 21 out of the 25 listed items.
The 4 remaining items I have not tested personally include the Mora Craftline knife, Milton ColorFit couplers, Dewalt 100pc screwdriver bit set (I do use these bits, just not that particular assortment), and the 3M WorkTunes hearing protector.
I was surprised though, to see that so many readers purchased the Pentel GraphGear mechanical pencils. It’s a great pencil that I can heartily recommend. If I’m being honest, part of the reason for that deal post was to “get it out of my system,” helping me to resist the urge to purchase another one or two for myself.
I was selective about my school and office supplies before I could afford to be selective about my hand and power tool choices. I know that some of you share that attention towards writing instruments, but I didn’t think it would be more popular than other tool deals.
Here are some more interesting gleanings from my Amazon affiliate reports:
Most Popular Cyber Monday 2019 Deal
Most Popular Thanksgiving 2019 Deal
Most Popular Black Friday 2019 Deal
This resulted from the Dewalt router + sander bundle deal, as the sander was strong in second place.
