I'm honestly not a fan of most high-end hand tools. Often I see them as vastly overpriced for the alleged value that you get. SK is one of the few tools that manages to make the equation work. They made in the USA, they are top shelf tools and yet the are not stupidly expensive. Now they are not cheap or budget tools but for the privilege of owning real, top quality, American made tools, it's hard to beat SK's value.
