The Manager of the Sox took the trophy to his home town in PR. With all that the island has been through these past couple of years from hurricanes, they need something to cheer about. Glad Boston was able to bring some joy to them!

It's just that when it comes to tools that I use often, I like to buy once and cry once.
Not all that long ago an electrician would not be caught dead with any other brand of tools especially screwdrivers, side cutters, diagonals and other tools Klein marketed to electricians.
Today many of the younger guys are going with Wera and other brands and report better results at similar prices. Once the box stores were able to sell Klein it seemed quality was lost?
Klein screwdrivers wear out in no time if you use them every day. Now the side cutters I have are 30 years old and still cut very well.
Of course some tools like Channelock and Ideal were always accepted in our industry.

America? Better double check that. Might be assembled in America, but the materials are all sourced from China and other Asian countries.

I like the bottle opener. I don't have one.

When I bought mine the package said "Beverage Tool" and the end had an image of a bottle cap. I never buy beer in cans, yuck.

Letherman tools was an advertiser years ago, and gave me all kinds of stuff. My favorite is the SkeleTool. There is a bottle opener on the handle, where the carabiner clip is.

When I lived in Denmark, we often wore wooden shoes similar to this. We would put a screw in the arch, something like the one I added to this photo. It meant we had a bottle opener with us most of the time.

I love my SkeleTool CX......it's been my EDC for several years now. My other favorite is the Leatherman Rebar which I recently acquired.

Yeah, all these multi-tools come with some sort of bottle cap lifters, some good, some not so good.

Well, it actually says 'made in the USA' , at least on the handle part.
Not America, as 'America' can mean anywhere made in North, Central, or South America.
