I lived in Japan a whole lot of years and didn’t really have a full compliment of tools with me over there. When I got back to the US in 2015 or so I realized my tools needed an upgrade for the new house that I had built.
When I first moved to Japan in 1996 and again in 2003 I’d have been willing to bet the answer to the question “what are the best screwdrivers” had two answers. Craftsman, and Snap-On.
Oddly enough when I stared doing the research for best screwdrivers in 2015 neither one of those brands was even in the top 5 or 10 of most websites.
I’ll spare you the research I did and tell you what I decided on. Wera Tools. But I bought them from Amazon, and specifically this set. At that time the set was $45 and of course now it costs $53 because that’s the way life is.
I travelled the world with these hand tools and stored them in a canvas “go” bag and probably abused them as much as a fella can.
6 or 7 years later the tools are still in great shape and most importantly of all none of the tips are worn or broken.
And while I know this is very subjective the Wera ergonomics are exceptional for me. Actually they are just a hair slick however with a drop of sweat or two on your hands they really begin to grip like no ones business.
I’ll keep this blog post short and sweet. Wera Tool Screwdrivers are simply holding up after my years of use as a Field Service Tech Rep.. I like them so much that I just bought a Wera Ratcheting Screwdriver as well and I love it too.
John’s Tech Blog highly recommends Wera Screwdrivers.
