I’m looking for a recommendation on hand tool brand(s) to invest in.
I moved to the US and only brought a few tools with me from the UK, I couldn’t see the need for many tools in a loft apartment. I have some space now, so I am starting to build up my workshop again. I have invested in Dewalt powertools but have a mixture of hand tools (screw drivers, hammers, pliers, wrenches, etc).
My OCD doesn’t let me just randomly buy different brand tools. I’d like to pick one and build it up over time, and my needs grow.
So if you could start from scratch, what hand tool brand would you pick? I have a slight preference for a brand that is available in the UK because I will return in 5 years or so. But I’m more interest in picking a quality brand that I can invest in.
Wera and Knipex look like viable options. Dewalt is a natural option but I get the sense from people that they are shelf filling with a some of their products.
