EDC, Pocket Dumps and The Knipex Mini Cobras.

As social media continues to grow and grow, so has the world of hashtags. If you have been living in a barn for the past 3 or 4 years, a hashtag is a word or phrase preceded by a pound symbol. The hashtag is (and always should be) relatable to the content of the post, so, for instance, if a movie theater posts about a new movie playing they may add #nowplaying or #newmovie to their post. At KC Tool we love our #kctool and #kctoolcrew hashtags as well as our brand’s tags like #wiha and #weratools.Read More »

Spotlight on Gedore’s TL Series

Gedore has released (to the States) a series pliers designated the TL series. Gedore’s TL (or dipped handle) series provides an inexpensive alternative to the flagship JC (or 2-component handle) series. The JC series still lead the way in Gedore’s pliers’ series, but there is great value in having options.

I love this decision from Gedore to release this series to the US. We are always pleading with all of our German manufacturers to release more product to the US (especially lower cost options). This is an awesome step from Gedore for us and our customers.
