I hadn’t realised that Knipex made grips.
The Facom designs are nice. Although Facom is no longer independent, I’ve always liked their stuff and I think their quality is still some of the best on the market unlike many famous brands that have deteriorated badly.
From memory, I think that German Stahlwille also make what us Brits call “mole grips” aka Vise-Grips. I have a handful of Stahlwille spanners from 20 years ago and rate them the best I’ve ever seen. Superb steel, good finish, very slim. Their vise grips seemed very generic but I would still trust the brand.
