And they're gone! Thank you to everyone that helped us sell all 100 pieces. You have helped enable KC Tool to be able to donate $10,000 to Habitat for Humanity of Kansas City!

If you missed the opportunity to donate and would still like to help out a great organization, please visit

KC Tool has held a fundraiser for local charities for the past three years and we are proud to keep that tradition alive in 2021. This year we have partnered with Habitat For Humanity Of Kansas City, who strives to build strong and stable neighborhoods by building strong and stable homes – actual, physical houses from the ground up. As tool fans, this couldn’t be a better fit, right?

We teamed up with @edcoutlaw to offer you a limited edition Knipex Cobra XS laser etched with the KC Tool logo, as well as the year and edition number. Only 100 of these will be sold. For each one sold, KC Tool will donate $100 directly to Habitat KC. Limit one per customer.

This collector’s item not only makes a great showpiece for you collection, but also helps those in need. That said, we know that it may be a stretch to ask you to help one of our local Kansas City charities. If you choose not to take advantage, please take a moment to consider giving to something you believe in. A little bit can go a long way in helping other people.
Since this is a limited edition item, we cannot warranty it. The product is manufactured to the same high standards of all Knipex tools, but has been modified.

@edcoutlaw, who did the laser engraving, includes the following instructions for care:
    - Please be aware that the laser engraving removes the atramentized coating which means the pliers could and may rust quicker in those areas.
    - We recommend some minor maintenance by applying a light oil (such as a mineral oil) and dry as you see fit during your use.
    - There are many oils and rust inhibitors on the market so please use the ones you prefer or have experience with.
    - To clean the pliers of dirt and grime rub with Isopropyl Alcohol on a microfiber towel or your preferred tool cleaner. 91% IPA evaporates quickly to get moisture off the surface and doesn't leave any residue.
    - This also strips any oils off the pliers so please remember to re-apply oil based on your needs to help inhibit rust and corrosion.

    Knipex Extra small

    Posted on Sep 17th 2021

    I bought these impulsively to support Habitat for Humanity and my tool addiction. So far nicer to carry in a pocket than the 125 version. Nice grips reminiscent of older pliers. And a more than practical opening width for extremely small pliers. The no button activation is a nice feature. I love this design and would like to see scaled up versions for the fact that there is no button to get in the way.

    Love supporting a good cause

    Tiny, nifty, like knowing I purchased something from a US owned small business that is helping others. Will continue to purchase items like this, the coffee mugs, and the Felo tools like last year.

    These pliers will be a great addition to my inspection tools.

    Something of a disappointment

    Posted on Sep 12th 2021

    As a Habitat volunteer here in east Tennessee, I decided to purchase this item in order to help out the Kansas City affiliate. I had assumed these would be "regular": size pliers that I could use for my Habitat work, but when I received them, I realized that they are just a toy, 3 or 4 inches in length. & I went back & looked at the write up on KC Tools page & noticed that they don't list the size. So the best I can do is 3 stars for helping out a good cause & zero stars for functionality.
