None, I'd take Knipex any day of the week  :)

X2, but the knipex ain't on the same price point as the channeys. I got a couple knipex in my daily box but all the tractor boxes have channel locks.

I just bought a pair of e-336 a week or so ago,  and have 2 more pars of blue handled pliers on the way.
I hear nothing but good about Knipex and have no reason to argue otherwise,  but channellock has been good to me and the price is right.

If I couldn't get Channellock anymore I'd go with Wilde, they have served me just as well are priced comparably plus seem to be finished a bit more nicely.
Not an important factor for me but appreciated when I do buy a Wilde tool.

I found it on Ebay, I'll hop on Google and see If they're currently available anywhere or something because it doesn't look very old.

I went on Google with no luck.

I did however turn up an Ebay listing for this one and had to have it.


Thanks for prompting the search that turned it up  :08:

Any idea how old it is ?

Now that one's cool.
Do you own any of these rescue tools ?
I've been tempted just to have them, but I just don't need them.
