Screwdrivers with striking cap
« on: April 07, 2018, 08:37:40 PM »
I'm an EDC-freak and i have a new project - striking cap screwdrivers.

I want to test these models for the next 12 month and find my new EDC striking cap screwdriver. A good Striking cap screwdriver is one of my most important EDC-tools.

It's a mix - I carrying them in the city, in the woods and for working around the house.



Left to right:
Hazet, Wiha, Format, Gedore, Wera, Wiha, Felo, Stahlwille

I forgot this Hazet

Excellent, good stuff CeHo, this is the sort of thing I like, but I'm afraid you're missing two really good Brands - PB Swisstool and Vessel... I know I know you can't review everything!  :salute:

Thanks fuzzbucket  :tu: - it was important for me that the stuff is high quality.

I know - I miss also Facom...

And there are some models form the other brands - for example the heavy duty Wiha - miss them too.

I let you know if there are wins and fails...

Over here they are called "Demolition Screwdrivers" and meant for beating the snot out of stuff in general so quality is really not the point a lot of times.

But as all other tools I too prefer the better ones and the new Milwaukee seem to be a decent combination of tough and reliable for me so far.



In general though the whole point is to sacrifice these as "Beaters" so that better drivers may live in peace. :twak:

I got some of those Weras and Wihas, and I prefer the Weras. Something with the handle of the Wihas just don't work well for me.

Those are my better drivers - they do the beating. :cheers:

Mostly they come out whenever there is something really stuck that deserves a whack and a spanner assisted twist - or when they just happen to be the first thing I see.

Ah, beautiful German screwdrivers. One of my favorite things  :tu:

However I am somewhat disturbed by the lack of Felo wood handled drivers.

That's right. I had two Stanley FM ones, they live in the shed now as unfortunately the handles started to perish and they've taken on a rather unpleasant odour... not unlike a cat's arse!  :ahhh

Nice set. I think quality is an very important aspect - for safety reasons... I saw to many broken junk screwdrivers...
