I love Klein screwdrivers, but I have been relying on my Wera a lot more. As they are a lot better for the price quality I find. Decided to make a quick video comparing to the two, tell me what you think and which brands you prefer.

Thanks in advance,

Nick

Klein is better than Wera but Wiha is better than Klein. The Fullers made in Canada arent bad for slotted and #2 robbies.

Robbies! I really like Klein but their insulated at 4 times the price, and how much better are they to justify that? Fullers I'll have to scope out, I should support my own country when I can!

Fuller gets a crappy reputation as a home owner brand, but they're surprisingly good quality. Not the most ergonomic, but they can take a beating (i've got a used and abused one as my beater) and pretty inexpensive.

Also you can still find some made in Canada Craftsman screwdrivers at Sears.

Ergonomic is important, as I used hand tools excessively, as I work in a chemical processing plant where glass piping is used. To much torque anywhere means I get fired instantly. Wera has got stainless steel units, which is all we use for fasteners.

I've got the same set as your testing in your video (wera) and I absolutely love them. Ill never go back to Klein. But when it's time to replace my wera's I think I'm gonna try either felo or wiha

Used the Wera for a bit. Liked them and would buy again. They lasted longer than Kliens ever did. I would say the Wiha lasted the longest out of the 3.I'm now trying PB Swiss and they are by far the nicest grip I have used, the tips can take a beating. The durability seems as good if not better than Wiha the quality of materials is beyond anything I have seen.

I have both Wera and Wiha. Love the Wiha for everyday use, I keep the Wera in a Pelican case with the rest of the insulated tools for protection. Good video mate, keep making more. :thumbup:

Thanks man, means a lot. I have been trying harder on the youtube lately, and its been paying off in the best way (free tools!) For everyday use I think these meet the best of both worlds!
