These heavy-duty tools have an unusual history. Made in the USA for many decades, they were standard equipment in all US Army tanks, but disappeared from the market over 20 years ago. Now we have found them again.

You can do absolutely anything with these tools - turn, pry, excavate, pound - whatever you can come up with. The four are 6, 8, 10 and 12". Solid forged steel from tip to top with rugged lacquered wooden grips - not very pretty, but then again you don't have to "baby" them. Imported.

Solid, Maybe Not Too Pretty
Reviewed By:   (Rutland, VT) 
I bought a set of these about 20 years ago. They have been used and abused since then. I've hammered on them, stood on them as a pry bar and generally abused them for two decades to no effect. No splits in the wood, no metal chips. Not really that pretty, but they do the job!

Sloppily Made Screwdrivers
Reviewed By:   (Pinetop, Arizona) 
These screwdrivers are substantial but I expected a better finished product. Two of the wooden handles were about 3/8 inch short. The resulting gap was poorly filled with some kind of filler but this was poorly done leaving gaps in the wood handle. One of the handles had a crack in the wood. How long before it falls out? Gobs of red lacquer everywhere. Someone did not take pride in their work when making this product. Garrett Wade should consider demanding a better product from their supplier. Or clearly state in the catalog these screwdrivers will arrive in "rough" condition.

Heavy Duty Screwdrivers

Finally! Something that lives up to, and beyond, it's description! Gave these to my brother-in-law this Christmas.....he (and everyone else) loved them. Heavy in heft, with hardcore wooden handles. Thank you!

Some Issues
Reviewed By:   (Syracuse , New York) 
I'm a big fan of vintage or heritage tools, as soon as I saw these in the catalog I asked for them as a Christmas gift. Overall the feel of them is quite hefty and I like that, however, I have issues. the wood is raw and untreated, not lacquered, it is also rough and unfinished. the metal handle around the wood is poorly ground, and on each of the four different sized screw drivers, the actual driver part is exactly the same size. its not one small screw driver for small screws one big one for big screws etc. why would I need four different sizes of the same screwdriver?

Only Half A Set

I remember these screw drivers in my grandfathers tool box, so I bought a set. They are wonderful. Sadly there's no Phillips head version.
