From the Manufacturer
All Pratt-Read Screwdrivers are made in the USA, where Pratt-Read has been manufacturing since 1798. All Pratt-Read Classic Series Screwdrivers meet or exceed ANSI/ASME standards and specifications for hardness and torque. The alloy steel blades are heat treated for superior strength and durability, and Zinc plated or Black Oxide Coated for corrosion resistance. Tips are manufactured to tight tolerances for sure and accurate fastener fit. Slotted tips are forged with serrated faces to resist slipping; other tips are precision machined to ensure full fastener engagement. The rugged 4 flute handles are made of impact and chemical resistant Cellulose Acetate and are ergonomically designed for comfort and maximum turning power. Set includes the following hooks/picks with blades as indicated: 1 small 180-Degree by 2-3/4-Inch, 1 small 90-Degree by 2-3/4-Inch, 1 small complex probe by 2-3/4-Inch, and 1 small scribe by 2-3/4-Inch.

The handles are easy to hold and feel good in my hand. The contours allow me get some pretty fine control. The handles are made from acetate, which is NOT plastic. It looks like plastic, feels like plastic, but plastic it ain't. It's made from wood pulp and is much stronger than plastic.
For use with aluminum engine parts I'd recommend filing the points to round because these will shred aluminum like it's paper. You'll need to start with a heavy file and a lot of pressure, because small files won't dent these.
I would love to have a set of these but with the round hook and the 90 degree bend about 1/2 the size so they can be used inside small shaft holes.
I used these mostly when I work on my motorcycle.
They are made in the USA.
I settled on these Pratt-Read picks because I wanted something low-priced but made in the USA.
I've had them now for about 8 months. They've worked great and held up really well.
Handy and inexpensive, I'd buy them again, but I'll probably look into a set with better handles and a pouch when I buy picks again.
I really love that the tools are made in the USA and the price is right for that kind of quality. The second thing you should know is that Ideal bought Pratt-Read. I think it was smart that they kept the original name and did not change the product into an Ideal item from what I can see. On the back of the packaging under "PRATT-READ Tools, LLC" it states "A Subsidiary of IDEAL INDUSTRIES, INC. ---line break--- Sycamore, Illinois 60178".
The handles feel like cellulose acetate as stated. It would be neat if they were rubber coated, but since these were designed to pull O-rings I am sure it makes more sense to have something that can be easily wiped down. The metal portion does not have the knurled finish as indicated in the picture. The metal finish looks very much like the color of a framing nail. I believe mine has a polished zinc finish that has been wiped with oil. I am suspicious these tools could rust if left outside, but by keeping them inside or wiping them down with oil I believe rust could be avoided. I tested the strength of the metal in my hand. The metal barely flexed with as much pressure as dare. I am sure these could be snapped or bent with abuse, but I not too excited to try with those sharp ends and bare hands. Some other subtle details that I noticed are the "Pratt-Read U.S.A" all are aligned with the position of the hook, the tools do not have individual part numbers (so you have to replace as a set if you have a non-warranty issue), the handle has 4 sides to reduce roll away, the end has a concave shape and will stand on its end, and that the tools do not come with a cap for the sharp tips. I believe the sharp tips will be a storage issue. I suppose one could use a magnetic bar, or cut a place in some foam, I think I will look for some small vinyl tubing at the hardware store and put these in a Plano box.
Some last thoughts. I have not used these yet so I can't say how they will hold up. I am planning on using these for working on laptops or anything tedious, so I don't expect they will be overloaded, but I could imagine they would hold up to some abuse. They don't feel like cheap Chinese tools. They feel American. I had also thought about picking up a similar set by PB Swiss, but the set was more than triple the price of this set. I had seen that some people had broken tips on some of the PB Swiss tools while researching. When it comes down to it, I just can't see how the PB Swiss tools are worth 3x the price of these for my needs. I think these tools will work out great for my needs and if for some reason the tools deteriorate or break I will look into replacement without regret considering the cost of these tools.
I added a photo of the picks in my organization box. I used some micro-fuel line as caps for the tips (OD 3/16", 5mm; ID 3/32", 2mm).
