    Very nice.

    Posted by Justin Eells on Jun 6th 2024

    Very slight wiggle in the joint, but it moves very smoothly through it's full range of motion. Easy to use one handed, and no need for a break in period. I got these more for angled access than for ergonomics, because I'm not a sissy, but they do feel really nice.

    Smooth and Robust

    Posted by James on May 10th 2024

    At first glance, these pliers are similar to the NWS 1096 series of pliers that have a similar angle on the business end. These pliers, however, are designed for a more compact working area since the business end is shorter than the NWS version. These pliers also do not have an internal spring or a locking switch, so in that respect they are like most other pliers. The finish on these pliers is a satin chrome, but most notable to me is the smooth operation of the pliers when opening and closing them. There is no resistance in the joint of the pliers. Also there is no play in the joint, and it seems that it will hold up to use over time. The grips are as comfortable as they look in the picture, meaning that I can apply significant leverage on them without straining my hands. The teeth in the end of the pliers are less sharp than the teeth other pliers like the Knipex Cobra or even NWS, but I think this is intentional so as not to damage a fastener or surface quite as much as those might. Finally, the shorter length of the business end will help to multiply the force that the user can apply to the handle so that it can securely grip even a rounded bolt or stud.

    Quality & Thought Throughout

    Posted by Marc McKenzie on Feb 25th 2024

    Even though I have many pliers from the best of German, American, and Japanese makers, I wasn’t prepared for how close to perfection these angled comfort grip pliers made by Gedore. I love the beautiful chrome finish, and how they perfectly fit my hands. The main pivot is silky smooth: neither loose, nor any resistance. But it’s the angle of the jaws that’s the game changer, allowing me to better view the work and take pressure off my wrist and elbow. No wonder Gedore is a tradesman standard across Europe!

    Interesting pair of pliers

    Posted by Bill E on Feb 2nd 2023

    When I saw these, I thought I would defiantly have to buy these. They feel really good in the hand and looking forward to using these on a project that would need a tool like this, for getting into an unique area.

    These pliers have a nice heft and mass to them but are still easy to manipulate. No complaints!
