At a reasonable price you get the best from Sears when it comes to tools.
These are the Chinese trash that are just copies of **********'s Husky pliers. They break and bend, and don't do their job like the old Western Forge USA made pliers always did.
Very strong durable set of pliers. Happy with purchase, but not with shipping. First order was lost, second order went through, but box it came in was crushed, outside packaging was damaged, lucky they are tough tools, no damage to them.
I bought these about 2 months ago, gave it some time on various uses to determine what my thoughts were... just “okay” is what have to say. The quality and precision of the craftsman brand have noticeably been declining over the years of my purchases. Cutters work well, needle nose, not so well. The fulcrums are very stiff and jaws don’t mate up flush. For anyone utilizing pliars daily, I would step up to a better quality tool.
Made in china. Inferior metal -- not vanadium. Stiff to use. Not like the ones I've used for years
