    have had the 7 1/2 and 10" pair for about a year and a half now and use em all the time. still carry a regular adjustable in my veto lc though, some times the angle on the knipex's make it difficult to get to certain things in tight spots.

    my favorite thing to use the knipex for: rounding out crimped/bent refrigerant tubing!!!

    I want to stick with made in USA hand tools, but the noticeable decline in quality is driving me away.
    I have been migrating to German made tools because the quality is generally better, and they often have innovative features that improve their usability, without distracting from their most basic function.

    I don't lose tools, so am willing to pay a premium for quality tools that make my job easier, and/or are more comfortable to use.
    If more government is the answer, then it's a really stupid question.

    Mark, every word you said is exactly how I feel. Especially the part about losing tools -- I'm OCD about not losing/misusing my tools, although they do get pretty dirty and broken in. The design of my Veto LC bag seems to cut down on loose tools, too.

    The problem with having all the same brand imo, particularly klein and kera, is that their handles are all the same and once the end is faded you have no way of telling which is which. (Particularly in Canada where we use robertson as well). All of my screwdrivers have different shaped/coloured handles so when they are in my tool bag I can identify them easier.

    I have Klein, so far they are working great, and if you loose one just go to the orange square and replace it, how easy is that ?
    Online i saw Felo screwdrivers, with a yellow and black handle, made in germany, chrome molibdenum steel bla bla bla....well, they are the most beautifull screwdriver i have ever seen, unfortunately i have already made my purchase
