Why is it that so many manufacturers seem to equate “small” with “cheap?”  Thankfully Klein doesn’t follow that line of thinking:  These are some truly comfortable and easy-to-use screwdrivers — even if they are small.

Truly there’s not a lot to say about these, except that they’re very easy on your fingers.  Even though you don’t necessarily put a lot of force into the small screws these type of screwdrivers are designed to work with, you have to create that force with your fingertips.  You can’t just wrap your hand around them — they’re too small.

So, with cheaper screwdrivers, you hurt your fingers.  Not so with these.  The cushion grip is nice and soft.

There’s now a four-piece set, though we haven’t seen it in retail stores personally.  Most of the time you’ll find these screwdrivers sold individually for around $4 each.

    Not sure if it’s obvious to you or not, but thought I’d mention it anyway: “Klein” means “small” in German. I had not heard of this brand of screwdrivers before, but it seems … fitting that they focus on smaller tools. 🙂

    They don’t normally focus on small tools, that’s the funny part!

    Klein tools are standard in most electrical fields, linemen carry Klein pliers and switchmen carry Klein snips and knives. Their cable cutters can be found in any telephone office. Electricians can be found using Klein screwdrivers because of the fancy conduit-reamer feature on specific models. Until now, none of these tools were particularly small.
