These are very nice pliers. They have very comfortable hand grips and the lifetime warranty is an extra plus. I like the 8 in. Lenght vs the shorter type pliers. The size and grip would work for a male or female.
I've been purchasing Craftsman for decades and find Craftsman tools of today sometimes have quality issues however the 8" Long Nose Pliers I received are fine. I suggest anyone buying hand tools in-store inspect all sets on the shelf first rather than just grabbing the first one. Sometimes times they're NOT all the same.
Great pair of needle nose pliers. Craftsman tools are my go to and these have not disappointed.
