Why are screwdrivers with hard, square, plastic handles like these classed as mechanics’ tools? They’re not easy to grip when dry; add the slightest bit of oil and that grip potential drops even further.

One saving grace with these Drapers is that most of the tools have a nut cast into their stem, allowing help from a spanner. All tips are magnetic and the configurations are well chosen. There are no less than three stubbies, and even a parallel pattern slotted driver, too.
