馃ぃ I'm dying. it's true though usually the comparable knipex tool will be 1.5 or 2X more expensive than the comparable klein.
Their linesmans are roughly the same price..... I wonder how much of it has to do with import taxes. We'll have to ask someone from Germany how much Klein products are in comparison over there.

Yeah on certain things I think they try to compete on price. But others like the eagle beaks are over 2x the price.

I have mostly Klein channellock and pump pliers (longer jaws), never had any issues with them. I like the beefier handle designs. I also have a few Knipex pliers and find they are nice where a thinner head fits in smaller places, the smooth jaw wrench style is nice for finished surfaces..
