History Of Tools


We know that the history of using tools by men goes back to almost 3million years ago and since then they have been improving, upgrading and becoming more and more efficient every day in order to meet the need of every single task. Tools of any kind are designed and invented to make tasks easier and that’s the nature of them. in the early ages, humans started to use primitive hand tools like sticks, sharpened stones and wheels to move, cut and hunt animals.

These simple and primitive tools then began to develop and optimized and got more and more complex and useful. Humans have been using tools to do simplest tasks to the most complicated ones. We have been using a simple knife to cut and very sophisticated devices to travel to other planets.

But the question is how fast these tools developed and what kinds of technologies and discoveries have helped developing them.

Well I believe the first discovery which made a huge difference in humans’ life was fire! Before discovering fire, early humans used to live very differently. Eating raw food and using sharpened stones to hunt animals and defend themselves. These primitive tools were used for a long time till fire were discovered.

With fire, the smelting and smithing skills were found and began the golden phase of tools and lifestyle development. Smelting iron and turn it into different shapes made early knives and daggers. These objects got more and more sophisticated by time and they became hammers, nails, screws and screw drivers which made life infinitely easier for men. Hand operated tools were used for generations and that was before the electricity was found.

With electricity the story completely changed. Now there was a great power source which could operate tools with much less energy and effort. At 1895 the first power tool was made by C & E company. An electric drill. Many experts say that 1895 is a year to remember because of that invention. This electric drill opened a door too all inventors and mega minds of that time to push the technology forward. This drill was huge in size and it was very heavy and it wasn’t suitable for long time drilling. It was very slow and not efficient yet it was the first power tool ever made by humans.
