    Hi
    Had all my hand tools stolen from my van yesterday evening by some scum bag!!!
    I know I will have to replace them all just wondering what pliers and cutters you lot recommend?
    I had mainly Kewtechnik pliers and side cutters as I have had them since about 1998 but they seem to be out of the hand tool game now.
    Irazola screwdrivers have been my favourite since the orange and grey ones so will get some more of these if they are still the best?
    Had my drill and impact driver taken too but will miss my hand tools so much more as I had some of them for over 20 years.

    Must admit, I was a WERA / WIHA guy until I bought 2 ITL drivers, as I said expensive but will outlive the other two types mentioned, that is if some scrot don't steal your tools.

    I like Wiha & Wera for screwdrivers...good and don't cost the earth.
    Side Cutters & Pliers I don't really use much, but if wanting good ones then Knipex. It's worth looking at CK Cropper Cutters imo

    Thanks guys, they were stolen between 6 and 9 last night. I take my tools off every night as I had my test kit and all my plant stolen 2 years ago apart from my hand tools. Guess I didn't take them off quick enough!!!
    Maybe not as expensive as last time but real nightmare when you think how many bits make up your hand tools.
