Also have one of these. Used it on a pair of dull WISS scissors I also got from Dad's tool chest. Worked a treat.

I've never been able to confirm it but I suspect he did time in the Mansfield Reformatory.

Nice but it cries out for two more accessories.

A charger that uses USB, and a shoulder holster. ;)

Oh, look a bunch of moving parts to break if you yank too hard on something stubborn.

I'm making shit up for fun though, I've no idea if that is a serious concern.
"If fighting is sure to result in victory, then you must fight! Sun Tzu said that, and I'd say he knows a little bit more about fighting than you do, pal, because he invented it, and then he perfected it so that no living man could best him in the ring of honor. Then, he used his fight money to buy two of every animal on earth, and then he herded them onto a boat, and then he beat the crap out of every single one. And from that day forward any time a bunch of animals are together in one place it's called a zoo! (Beat) Unless it's a farm!"

It should be OK for low torque jobs where access to the fitting is not an issue.

Bet it costs more than an inexpensive set of box wrenches.

There's no way that thing can put the proper torque on that lawn mower blade bolt. Looks like those pliers come in different sizes?

Here's one of Dad's shivs that he used to make out of heavy-duty metal saw blades. Razor sharp!
