About Knipex Tools

Knipex was founded in 1882 and has grown to become the world's leading manufacturer of pliers for professional use. With a very concentrated focus, Knipex sets out to do one thing and do it better than anyone else -- make the best pliers and cutters. They have succeeded at their mission by controlling all aspects of product design and manufacturing. With such innovative (and often-copied) designs as the Alligator, the Cobra, the Cobolt, and the Pliers Wrench, Knipex continues to “make work more effective, easier and safer”. All Knipex pliers are designed and manufactured in Germany
