Wiha Microfinish screwdrivers

The Screwdriver is arguably the most commonly known and used tool in the world. Here’s 5 reasons why yours aren’t working for you and how to fix it.

1. The tip isn’t holding up

The tips on our screwdrivers are precision machined the to exact tolerances for a perfect fit – every time you use them. We utilize an exclusive chrome-vanadium-molybdenum tool steel to preserve the tip shape and durability for repeated use. We even harden them to a 60 on the Rockwell C scale and then coat them with Hard Chromtop Plating. This provides you with additional unmatched curability for tip and blade integrity.

When the tips on your screwdriver aren’t holding up, chances are it’s taking longer than it should to complete simple tasks and causing you frustration.

2 . The handles aren’t doing you any favors

All of our screwdrivers and torque tools have a method behind their madness. The handles  are engineered to be proportionate to the size of the amount of power needed. Their ergonomic design follows the shape of your hand when in use to give you up to 40% more power. The smaller the tool, the smaller the handle to achieve maximum mechanical advantage. The two-component Soft Grip handles feel great in your hand and lead the industry in comfort and durability.

3. They don’t look nice anymore

When tools wear easily, you’re less likely to want to use them.  We design our products with that in mind. From the blades to the handles, with wear and tear, Wiha drivers are going to work as well on the 1,000th day as they did on the first day . With our sleek ergonomic design, hardened chrome wear and corrosion resistant finish, your tools will withstand the test of time in durability and add some style to your tool collection.

4. They’re draining your wallet faster than you know it.

There’s an old fishing saying that goes “If you take care of your bait, your bait will take care of you.” The same goes for your tools. If you invest in tools and the brand you buy, your tools will last longer, give you your desired results, and cost you less money in the long run. You’re one step closer to buying ANOTHER screwdriver with every nick, ding, and stripped screw.  When you invest in Wiha Tools, they’ll pay you back with longevity and high quality results.
