Klein Journeyman Screwdriver

It seems like everyone’s re-engineering their screwdriver line — Klein’s no exception. In a departure from their instantly recognizable yellow and black screwdrivers, this month they introduced the new Journeyman series of screwdrivers which they designed to meet or exceed applicable ASME/ANSI specifications.

These new Journeyman screwdrivers copy other manufacturers’ three-sided design with their “tri-lobe” handle, made with a soft-grip material molded over a solid inner core. The butt of the handle features Klein’s Tip-Ident — these patented markings allow you to instantly see what type of screwdriver you’re holding and the orientation of the tip.

Klein precision-machines the tips to precisely fit the fasteners, and they weld a hex-shaped “bolster” to the hard steel shaft for extra strength. Although they don’t mention it, I’m sure the bolster can also help you get that extra bit of torque with a wrench.

Klein makes their new Journeyman line of screwdrivers in the USA. They’re offering them in 3/16″ cabinet, 1/4″ and 5/16″ keystone, and numbers 1-3 Phillips.

I haven’t found any prices yet, but I’m betting these screwdrivers aren’t cheap.

    I’ve been seeking a response as to why the Journeyman(tm) lines of Klein (tools) are significantly less expensive than the traditional lines though they seem to have virtually the same features or better… Thoughts? I just bought a set of the 7 drivers package (traditional) still in package, got receipt, maybe I’ll check H*D* today for this JM line… They’re slick..
