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.

I grew up with this style of screwdriver, so a set for myself and one for a contractor friend who also grew up with this style driver. Good quality and thick blades that can be custom ground for a particular use.

Great Screwdrivers

First introduced to me by my father, these screwdrivers were able to take a beating and still work. Glad I got them.

Some of the most solid screwdrivers I've ever used. You most likely will not break these. The finish of the wood to the metal is a little rough. But they still feel good in my hand. One small problem though. The tips of the drivers are not square. All four are/were at a noticeable angle to the shaft, making them difficult to use. A few minutes with a hand file fixed them though.

Wow! My Favorite Tool!
Reviewed By:   (Suring, WI) 
I was amazed and excited when I found that you carry these screwdrivers. I have an old one of these that got passed down to me from my great aunt. It is the first tool I reach for when I'm going to do a fix around the house. I have used it to dig, pry, chip, chisel and, of course, tighten & remove screws. It has taken more than it's share of abuse and keeps working. The grip fits the palm of the hand & doesn't slip. The full steel tang allows you to strike it with a hammer and lever it under items that would send other tools to the trashcan. Your description says " They are not pretty", but their simple, durable design are a thing of beauty to me. They feel like an old friend in my hand make me smile. So wonderful to have a set of these remarkable tools at such an economical price. Thank you for finding them.
