In order to find good tools, you have to go to the web these days. At every hardware store near me, the only high quality choices were Channelock and Klein, and none stocked the size I wanted. Everything else off-brand that matched this product was shoddy, and usualy built in China. I've had a pair of these for over 20 years, and this was to for a separate kit. The old one is as good as the day I bought it.

The jaws have this diamond shaped cross hatch on it and not just straight grooves cut across it.

If only it had a automatic return spring in it so one wouldn't have to open the jaws manually each time it would be perfect.

The quality is reflected by the price, but anyone who isn't interested in buying junk long nose pliers will be willing to pay for the premium.

As with every Channellock product I've ever used, this needle nose is pricey but worth the price. I carry this pliers in a holster as a professional and I can't use junk. This always has a cutting surface in alignment and the cross hatch grip is the best in the business.

UPDATE:
To the credit of Amazon, and their automated and streamlined return process, I have since received a new pair of pliers two days after having made the request for replacement. The new tool is not exactly an exemplar of attention to detail, but they do appear to be solid and entirely functional. I hope it gives me years of dutiful service, and I can rest easier knowing I have supported my fellow countrymen by buying a US-made quality tool. I am knocking a star off though, since surface rust was present out-of-box -- I don't buy tools to have something pretty, but not adequately oiling tools to be stored long term is just generally ill advised. I am leaving the original review too, in order to encourage others to give Channel Lock a second chance, should they find themselves in the same predicament as mine. After all, these needle noses where the only quality issue I've ever had out of all the various Channel Lock tools I own and love.

I'm to the point, 20+ years later, that the tools I inherited from my pops are all wearing out and becoming unusable (some of which he inherited from his pops!). I strongly believe in buying quality tools once, rather than repurchasing cheap crap in perpetuity. To that end, I went to Amazon for a solid US-made tool, Channel Lock. However, I'm sitting here looking at a pair of their 6" needle noses, that appear to have been dressed and finished by Helen Keller herself. These things are horrendous: uneven grindings, off-center tips, uneven tips, grossly off-center profile, mismatched close, greatly gapped close, and excessively stiff.

I couldn't believe that such a highly regarded company had produced such a piece of garbage that actually made it out the door, and so spent a couple hours researching others' experience in this regard.

I originally bought these pliers for around $15, which I felt was a good price for a pair of American-made pliers. Out of the box, they were stiff. I've heard that this is pretty common for Klein and Channellock pliers, so I figured it was just normal to have some resistance when opening and closing a new pair. They were well-oiled from the factory, but even after adding some oil into the joint, the stiffness didn't improve. I've been using them for about 6 months now, and they are still pretty stiff. It takes a bit effort to open and close them.

I later bought the 8-inch Knipex long-nose pliers with cutter (Knipex 2611200, made in Germany), and wow, what a difference. The rivet on the Knipex seems to be machined more accurately, and those pliers are super smooth out of the box. The quality of the machining is also better on the Knipex vs. the Channellocks (mine have some uneven grinds and part of the logo didn't get stamped on because it was off-center).

I paid $20 for the Knipex pliers, and they were also longer (8 inch vs. 6). Not much of a price difference compared to these Channellock pliers. While I appreciate a good quality American made product, these Channellocks have so far not been very impressive. I would have likely given these a better review if I had never owned the Knipex pliers. However, now that I've experienced a really good pair of pliers, it's hard to be impressed by these Channellocks.

Great pair of needle nose pliers. I don't mind paying a little more for something that works as it is supposed to and will last a lifetime. Channellock is one of the last great tool making companies left.

I have had this set of pliers forever. They Continue to serve me well. Given their track record, they should last me a lifetime.

Buy with confidence.
