Fantastic quality

Normally I just get the standard craftsman screwdrivers, but I actually couldn't find a 1/4 blade longer than 10", so I sprung for the craftsman professional version. The build quality is fantastic - even though I didn't think I'd like the rubber build of the handle versus the normal composite material, it's actually pretty tough and conforms to your hand pretty nicely. I'm a happy camper :)

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Disappointed first use, good warranty

Tip of screwdriver broke the first time using it trying to loosen a tough screw. Fortunately, the warranty is great. Took it back to Sears, no questions asked, they replaced it no problem. Hoping it was just a fluke from a bad batch, as I haven't had any similar problems with my other Craftsman tools.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

A Long-Reach Version...

I can't think of very many projects I've undertaken over the years that hasn't required the use of at least one screwdriver. Usually, an assortment of these versatile tools is necessary due to the never ending changes being made in the fastener industry. The good ole fashioned slotted screwdriver still ranks among my most useful tools!

Craftsman has always had a solid line of screwdrivers. Who hasn't bought a set or been given a set as a gift? Most of us started out our tool collection with these tools.

Well, the designers at Craftsman never seem to be satisfied with "good enough."

They have worked to improve on what many people consider the perfect tool and in my opinion they have succeeded. In a world where most tool manufacturers seem only to be concerned with gadgetry like laser guidance systems, ratcheting what-evers or battery operated this-and-that's, Craftsman has broken down the key features of the common slotted screwdriver and improved it. You may find some of these ideas used by other companies but I doubt you will find them all used on one tool by anyone else but on the Craftsman Professional Slotted Screwdriver.

  1. The business end of these screwdrivers is precision ground to ensure a secure fit with the fastener with little chance of slippage. This will protect the tool and the fastener.
  2. The tip also features grooves cut into the blade. This further improves the grip with the fastener and enhances your turning power.
  3. The shaft is solid and strong! It is round and chromed, rather that 4-sided. This enables the user to keep the tool cleaner to enable years of satisfactory use.
  4. The largest sizes include a bolster at the joint between the shaft and the handle. This further improves the strength of the tool.
  5. The handle is comfortably designed to prevent user fatigue. Large enough to provide a firm grip and molded with thumb rests.
  6. Each Craftsman Professional Slotted Screwdriver has a hard resin end cap on the butt end of the handle making it easy to identify the size.
  7. Craftsman backs this tool with its famous lifetime replacement warranty.

I can't think of anything I would improve. Can you?

I would recommend this product to a friend.
