Lenox, East Longmeadow, Mass., a manufacturer of power tool accessories, hand tools, torches, solder and band saw blades, announced the 2009 Hackman World Tour. Lee “Hackman” Breton is hitting the road to spread the word about the new Lenox T2 Blade Technology on reciprocating saw blades and hacksaw blades.

Throughout 2009, Hackman will be traveling the globe making stops all around the United States, South America, Europe, Asia and Canada. At each stop along the way, he will demonstrate Lenox's latest technology by cutting a vehicle in half. The vehicles are selected to be appropriate for each location, including a double-decker bus in the UK, a Zamboni in Canada, and a Jeepney in the Philippines.

In support of the tour, Lenox is launching a new website, cutsomething.com. The site takes you on a virtual tour of the Lenox factory where you can learn about products through videos, demos and sampling. The site also allows you to follow Hackman's progress in his world tour.

The Hackman World Tour kicked off last month at the Lenox factory in East Longmeadow, Mass., where Hackman cut apart a police car.
