I recieved the Kobalt Mini Pliers set for Christmas a couple of years ago and they are still going strong. I have used them for a great many things since then but they are still working as if they are brand new. The variety of pliers in the set was great as there is a pair in the set for every type of job. The size of the tools is also a big plus since they can fit in small places and perform precision tasks. This set has been great for wiring tasks such as stripping, pulling, cutting and everything else. The set has also been great for precision cutting. At first glance, the size of the pliers might make you question their durabiltiy, but do not be fooled. These pliers are very durable and capable of handling the toughest tasks. They are a great addition to any tool box and are the perfect type of tool for detail work. Where larger pliers fail because of their bulk, these come through.
