Knipex Tools was started in 1882 by Carl Gustav Putsch who set up a shop in the family home specializing in making pliers. To this day, Knipex still specializes in making high quality pliers and in addition to that, they have created some really cool and innovative pliers designs. Knipex specialty pliers include the pliers wrench, the Alligator and Cobra pliers and the Cobolt bolt cutters – each with their own specialties and features that set them apart from common brands. Knipex’s workmanship is also among the best, their tools are made of some of the strongest tool steel available and it’s a difference you can feel.
