I make no secret that I am a sucker for real wood on tools. Better yet, I love the ones I feel like I can actually use instead of the kind that’d make you feel bad if it were banged up a little. These Sheffield gift sets from Lowe’s are headed in the right direction.
What you’re looking at here are cheap Chinese tools with wood on them. I know that; you know that. The screwdrivers won’t last forever and the razor knife will most likely live in the drawer most of the time but it’s far better to say, “I used them all the time and just wore them out” than “Oh yeah, where is that thing?”
If a well-meaning relative is going to spend $25 on a gimmicky tool for you anyway, it’s better to get something you might actually use. Also, did I mention they have wood handles and inserts? Dammit, Uncle Bob, are you listening?
