So I'm down a pair of Kliens and I brought back my pair of first run Journeyman's. The insulation is cracked pretty bad. Usable with some tape, but needs to be replaced.

I haven't seen the red re-grips lately but might use those.

It seems like dipping them would be a great way to re-grip. does anyone have any experience with this. It seems pretty straightforward, dip, dry.

Any tips? (Besides new Knipex, I know...)

I still have my original pair of Klein linesmans from when I started 10 years ago....it is probably the only tool I haven't lost or worn out yet. Don't ask me how???

The tool gods must know I want some Knipex linesmans so these will probably last another 10 years....:censored::laughing:

The Kline replacement handles are good. I did the dip on a pair of linemans and didn't like it. Dipped it several times and it was still thin.

I don't have much problems with the handles on linemans. The cutters need to be non metallic though.
