We wrote the blog below almost a year ago. We wanted to give you a brief update.
These are some of our favorite handles. We get calls for them weekly. We have a spot of good news. They are coming back…sort of…they are still discontinued and we can’t get individual screwdrivers but we are going to be able to get a few dozen sets. The Wiha 51099 11 Piece Dynamic Grip Slotted/Phillips Screwdriver Set is going to be in stock today. We won’t have them for long nor will we ever be able to replenish. Get yours before we run out.

I’m truly bummed to hear that Wiha USA is no longer selling the Dynamic grip (aka Dynamic Handle) screwdrivers. As of this writing, they have only a few sets left and no individual drivers up for sale. At KC Tool, we also have some sets and a some individual drivers left in stock but when they are gone that will be the end of them in the U.S. This was the only full size screwdriver we offered that had a rotating cap and extremely tapered handle and there are certain tasks where these features really come in handy. It’s unlikely I will ever be able to wear mine out but you know how tools tend to grow legs. I’ll have to really keep an eye on them.
I tried to plead with Wiha USA to keep them for sale in the States and even sited the multiple great reviews our customers have left on our website like this one from David P.
“This line of screwdrivers have a great handle that doesn’t collect dirt as bad as the rubberized kind, with a spinning top that fits your palm. It is my driver of choice for non-energized electrical work.”
I’m with David, these are killer for finish electrical. They make quick work of installing or removing the long, fine pitch screws you find on switches, outlets and wall plates.
We will keep trying to convince Wiha USA to bring back the Dynamic grip screwdriver but you may want to grab a spare if we still have your favorite size in stock.
