Editor's Notes

December 03, 2018:

Took a look at the offerings from Roper Whitney, adding the No. 5 Jr. and the XX; they may both be pricey, but they are built to last and versatile. Also selected the Neiko Power Kit and Capri Tools 16 Piece as budget-friendly alternatives, along with the Darice Euro and Beadsmith Pliers for light duty.
