    It looks like the same kind of jaw design as knipix uses, which is very good.
    The adjustment looks like it would be nice, but I'd be concerned about the plastic parts of the adjustment mechanism.
    I've never once had a good long term experience with a hand tool that has plastic parts involved for anything but the handle....
    If more government is the answer, then it's a really stupid question.

    I have the knipex but don't like the lock in the center and this looks easier to access. The 12" version of this wrench has a steel mechanism. I'm not sure if those are plastic or just painted metal. I will know tomorrow.

    This Bahco doesn't have the red mechanism, but rather a brushed steel. Same wrench, larger size

    I have been using these for at least ten years without a problem.
