I broke my vintage Goodell 22 1-1/4" 22 E putty knife while removing
some old brick molding around a door. It has a full tang and
comfortable molded plastic handle. Who makes or owns Goodell? Looking
where to buy.
Looks like either Goodell has gone under or been bought out, maybe???
Or, I suppose the server could be out for maintenance over the holiday
week but I could find only one distributor that had anything of theirs
in stock and it was just a couple of taping knives.
I've also a really old one of theirs, but recently everything of any
quality I've bought has been Hyde--very similar.
Not trying to be glib here, but I absolutely hate breaking or losing a
well-worn-in putty knife.
Lucky for me, I have a source (Richard) for putty knives of varying
stiffness and handle quality.
It is one of those tools, the feel of which cannot be described. I
also have a small flat pry-bar like that, looks like a WonderBar, but
One of my guys took one of my putty knives and was going to open a can
with it. Two voices, in unison said: "*I* wouldn't do that."
That was pretty funny.
This one is pretty cool, especially for scraping on quartz
countertops... no scratchees.

Grok that. I have an old Hyde stiffy which has followed me for 30
I found a 6" WonderBar which is great. I also found that the
fantailed moulding bars from HF work great when sharpened on the belt
sandah. I picked up a set of 1.5-6" spring steel HF putty knives and
have found them one of the best knives I've seen in a long
while...after I took the rough tips off 'em. A minute of filing shaped
each 'em up nicely. 'Course, I don't shop at any of the $45/knife
stores. Y'know, places who sell Festeringtools, stuff like that.
I hope the guy doesn't try it with one of those brass jobs.

Gee, ain't religion GREAT?
Figured ought to post link...
I've used these folks in distant past before they had the online
catalog, etc., ...
I noticed the Goodell stuff is in the "Industrial Surplus" section
rather than the main catalog which adds further to the likelihood that
Goodell is no more I'm afraid...
If you do manage to learn otherwise would be nice to know.
It's not the web-server. it is the domain-name itself that fails. No
registration data whatsoever. So it's been 'gone' for a while.
History -- Goodell Tool mreged with Goodell-Pratt, back in the 1920s.
Subsequent history shows they're part of Miller Falls.
