** ĦAy, caramba!**I must have over 100 screwdrivers, i was obsessed with finding the perfect screwdrivers. What i came up with is a Swiss company called PB Swiss. there products are unbelievable. Very high quality swiss steel, parallel ground tips, this is what makes them fit the fastener better, and very durable. they offer swiss grips, they have soft rubber grips, very comfortable, but if you get them greasy, they will always look that way, i prefer the good old classic grip, hard plastic asatate handles or something like that, like the old craftsman driver handles, anyway, if they get dirty, you can just hit them with some brake clean, wipe em down, and they look as good as new. Other drivers that are good quality and bang for the buck are Wera and also wiha drivers from German, very high quality. If you want good old usa drivers with out breaking the bank,Pratt and Read drivers will do you fine. People , In my testing, i found Klein drivers to ** ĦAy, caramba!**be the worst drivers of all, they cam out and snap#2 heads very quickly, i have no idea why electricians like them so much.
again, amazon is a good place to find wera and wiha and probably Pratt and read, Pb swiss will have to be ordered, there are only a few dealers in the USA that PB Swiss, tthey are a bit pricey, but are tools that will last long enough to hand them down to your son. Pb Swiss also makes excellent steel products like punches, pin punches, sets, picks, and allen wrench sets, and ball end allen sets, all around a company that puts out great products.
Lastly, For guys needing a all around multi driver in your race car, pre runner, tool box or pit boxes, i recommend the picquick
6 and seven bits plus 2 sizes of nut drivers, Canadian product, built well, heavy duty, unique and very handy. I have used one for about 2 years, it is still a perfect tool, the only downside is the bits are made in Taiwan, and not in Canada or the USA. A good Baja worthy tool
