With the longest tool in the set measuring just 150mm end to end, and most averaging around 125mm, these are technically classed as mini pliers. But that doesn’t mean they’re any less usable than their full-size cousins. In fact, as super-useful end-cutting and long-cranked nose variants are included, this is easily the most versatile kit here. Couple all this with decent, well shaped grips – which prevent the compact size reducing the amount of hand power you can apply – a smooth sprung action and sharp blades, and this is an obvious winner.
