Welcome to the Harry J. Epstein Co!

If you have just stumbled upon us in this vast world we call the internet, we aren't just another online retailer. What makes us different? Well...

  • We've been operating out of the same brick and mortar store in downtown Kansas City since 1933.  
  • We are a family owned tool store that specializes in good quality US made hand tools.  
  • We buy large liquidation deals from many US tool manufacturers, so we have killer prices on what we refer to as "closeouts".  
  • We are a wholesaler as well as a retailer, so if you are in the business of selling tools, we have a special dealer program we'd love to tell you about.  
  • We are a small company that likes to talk to our customers, so if you have any questions feel free to pick up the phone and give us a call (or shoot us an email).
  • We have a box art program where we custom paint a picture of your choice on your box. 
  • We try to keep things in stock, so typically we can ship in 1 to 2 business days.  (We do have items marked "special order" that take longer.)
  • We've been doing this for a while so we know the merchandise that we sell.  If you have any questions we have people that can answer them.

We are a small wholesale tool store in downtown Kansas City (started in 1933) that specializes in quality American made hand tools. We buy directly from manufacturer's and also buy closeout/liquidation deals. We wholesale as well as retail hand tools all over the world. Have a question. Give us a call or send us an email. We like to talk to people.


Did you ever wonder what happens to your order after you click "purchase"?
