Ditto on the Ideals. I just got me a screwdriver to try it out about two months ago and its still like new. I love it and just wish I could find a dealer that is closer to my home.

The only klein sidecutter failures I had was when I cut a valve stem on a pickup truck.

It's hit and miss...sometimes I see klein's that look like they were machined in india, other times they look better than everything else...I am just SO used to the feel of Klein's pliers!
