the pliers are very nice. they will be used often. Be careful taking them out of the molded plastic packaging.
Even though the product has the Craftsman name, the Evolv is another company sub brand and does not come with the Craftsman product warranty that you would expect of a hand tool with the Craftsman name attached. One of the cutters heads completely broke off, and the shorter set of needle nose pliers, nose bends from use, so the tip of the pliers no longer make contact when fully closed. Took the itmes back to the store to exchange as I would every other Craftsman product, yet my exchange was declined because this is not a Craftsman tool! This will probably be my last Craftsman purchase as I no longer see any benefit to purchase the brand.
These tools are clean to say inspection showed closing and accurate precision. The clumbism is not finely a purpose that expells the finess that me myself passes by me and would not want. The strength is where I have to see. I work with ( around ) industrial Cad Cam exposures. But absolutely well made except the clumbeness size built where the working possibilities limited.
These are great and handy little tools. Great for those jobs you are litimited. With space.
