1966 the year I was born I was given a silver horseshoe with the brand name Diamond Tool and Horseshoe Co. on it. It has always been a part of my life and a bit of a mystery. I was interesting to find out where it came from and to read about the co.

I just remember growing up knowing this is where my Dad Ron worked and being proud. Now this week my son is doing a presentation about both of his Grandpa's working at Diamond. And how Dennis Kalli designed the 4 point punch for the horseshoes. Thank

What a fine tribute to the men and women who spent many dedicated years at Diamond. You were, and remain family. Dad would be touched by this. Thanks to all who had a part in this project and especially Dennis Hackett.
