We know, we know. If you follow our website and social media, you have probably figured out that we have actually carried Stahlwille for a while now, but that doesn’t mean we can’t celebrate! KC Tool is very proud to announce that we carry a HUGE selection of Stahlwille tools, both in stock and available to order from Germany.
Stahlwille is one of the most highly regarded German tool brands. Founded in 1862, the company takes the quality of their products very seriously. Many of their tools are still forged and assembled in Wuppertal, Germany. In recent years, Stahlwille has taken great pride in their line of torque tools and have been innovators in the field. Stahlwille is considered by many German tool aficionados to be the best-of-the-best, and you know where the best place to buy German tools is, right? KC Tool of course!
At KC Tool, we are proud of all the great reviews we get. That said, our products very rarely get a bad review. When we browse our own website and see that nearly all our tools have five-star reviews, we feel self-conscious that it appears fake. How could we have all stellar reviews? I don’t recall any other websites where all their products have four and five star reviews. With all the five-star reviews on our website, one might get suspicious and think that we are doctoring the numbers, so-to-speak. We aren’t, we promise.Read More »
It’s a horrible feeling. You have been working in the shop for hours, laboring over your work and all-of-a-sudden everything comes to a halt. Why? A fastener broke and you can’t get it out. You can try and dig it out somehow, but most of the time the best option is to use some form of extractor, or as many call it, an “easy out.”Read More »
KC Tool is proud to present Hazet as our newest German hand tool manufacturer!
Many of you are probably already well aware of the Hazet German hand tool brand, especially if you are a Volkswagen or Porsche aficionado. Hazet’s association with these premier automakers have lasted decades.
Hazet was founded by Hermann Zerver in Remscheid, Germany in 1868. Ha-Zet came from a shorting of his first and last name. The company has continued to grow in the last 150 years but still maintains its family ties with the 4th and 5th generation (Hermann Jochen Zerver and Matthias J. Hoffmann, respectively) of Herman Zerver still running the company.
Hazet offers a full range of hand tools as well as a variety of specialty tools including automotive (like mentioned above), industrial, automation and aerospace. We are really excited to strengthen our existing industrial and automotive lines, with the addition of Hazet. It seems a natural fit in amongst our other outstanding brands. Some of the tools Hazet is most famous for are their tool trolleys: the “Assistent” series of tools (image below).
We will start carrying a full complement of Hazet tools starting the third week of March. Please keep your eye on our website. But if you need a reminder we will give you a heads up email to let you know when they are in stock!
Exciting news out of Wera this week. They were proud to announce that they have partnered with Red Bull Racing. They are one of the top teams in Formula One racing led by Daniel Ricciardo and Max Verstappen. Red Bull Racing and Wera both have a record of branching out of their respective industries norms (i.e. Wera’s Advent Calendar, Wera Tool Rebels slogan, Red Bull’s Flugtag, New York Red Bulls MLS soccer team etc…) which makes this pairing so very cool.
From all of us at KC Tool, we wanted to thank you for another wonderful year. 2016 was yet another record breaking year for us. We realize that all of our success comes from an amazing and loyal customer base. Whether you are a gigantic shipyard, or a silicon valley based tech outfit, a regular poster on a tool forum professional, or a part-time diy’er, you all mean a great deal to us. Thanks for your business in 2016!
