I'm not too sure if these are actually sold by Wiha Tools, I doubt it. Overkill for most people however they're a great price for what they are. Made in Germany.

 

the actual product from their website

$NZ29 or

 

~ genuine ~ US$52
https://www.wihatools.com/esd-safe/screwdrivers/esd-safe-softfinishr-slotted-phillips-screwdriver-6-piece-set

so , as they say, a deal too good to be true ??
It does say clearance line , normal price over $100. So could be genuine ?

Wiha are nice in the hand ,but mine ( Ive owned a few) didnt seem to last any longer than a Chinese made Stanley . :-)

I bought these three items from the seller

 

 

 

The Wiha Diagonal Cutter kicks butt (it has this "POWER" button that increases leverage and does work , cuts nails and bolts easy and the blade hasn't damaged or chipped (ideally for bolts i should be using a Knipex Bolt Cutter)

 

The Wiha 5 piece presicion screw driver set  was a good upgrade and opens tiny screws so far without damaging the tips

 

The Wiha SoftFinish® Slotted/Phillips Screwdriver 5 Piece Set is good ,better than the other non-branded screw drivers i used in the past , the tips seem good

Thanks xcon. I've done a little digging and I can confirm they are indeed sold by Wiha Tools. Specifically sold by Premium Tools (NZ) Ltd, official distributor of Wiha Tools in AU/NZ (sold in AU by Premium Tools Australia Pty Ltd)
