Knipex Cobra pliers. I never thought I would spend $100 bucks on a set of 3 pliers..... Until I was helping my neighbor and used a pair he had. I went directly home and ordered these.
Knipex pliers are made in Germany. I've had the same set of Knipex cutters in my box since 2010, and never sharpened them once. They get used almost daily at the shop.I have a single pair of Husky slip-joint pliers that look similar to those an mine sucks. I think it worked well a couple weeks before it started slipping. Abuse the crap out of those and let us know how it goes.
I'm fairly certain they might replace the Husky one. Not totally sure.
If ya'll want, I can go crazy on tools in this thread like I did on cars in my Used Car Reviews thread. I own about $100,000 worth between what I have at the house and at the shop, ranging from stuff from Harbor Freight that I absolutely love to stuff from SnapOn that I feel like I wasted money on.
