These are made of high grade steel and will last a lifetime. Best of all they are made in the U S A.
The arcjoing pliers at the very, top left of the picture are NOT in this set 8-piece set (Model #45399). I've specifically bought this set considering that I will have that arc joint plier (Model #45385). Alas, instead I got another long nose plier in this 8-piece set. However, reading the description of the listed pliers, yes, the arc joint pliers are NOT listed. Buyer beware...read the small print. Dissapointed.
This selection of craftsman gives you a nice range of pliers to fit every job. At first they are a were a little stiff but loosened up with time
The good old trusty 'Black Handle' Pliers from Craftsman. Unfortunately these are the last of them from Western Forge out in Colorado, the latest sub-par Sears offerings are from overseas. Buy these while they last, because the quality these offer at a fair price point stacks up to that of the big name 'Tool Truck' brands, some of which came out of the same forging as these. Get Them While They Last!
Very good set that includes a nice variety of pliers.
The large items of the set are made in USA on them. They seem to be good quality for homeowners. The smaller three items are made in china and don't appear to be of the same quality, joints don't seem to be as tight and alignment is a little off. Still a good set for the homeowner. I have not used them enough to give any more of a response
