More than a century of experience goes into the manufacture of quality pliers from the German tool specialist Knipex. Back in 1882, Carl Gustav Putsch established the company as a small tool-making business with a daily production of 60 pairs of hand-forged nippers and farrier's pincers. Today it is still a family-owned firm and produces a range of over 1,000 different models of pliers for the most varied of uses. These are exported to more than 100 countries. Strength, durability, ergonomic design and precision are what makes Knipex tools the first choice of professional users around the world. Even under tricky conditions these high-quality tools ensure ideal handling and perfect results.
