Practical presents: Hand tools for Christmas

Schonach, October 2016 — Early birds start searching as early as summer, while most people get around to it in late autumn or even right before Christmas, but everyone is faced with the same question: "What should I get my friends and family for Christmas?" The Black Forest hand tool manufacturer Wiha Werkzeuge is offering a practical and high-quality alternative to the standard range of last-minute gifts like ties, slippers, and socks. The Wiha hand tool gift ideas and advent calendars are wrapped in a festive look for the holiday season.

With these products in beautiful packaging, Wiha offers clever, innovative, and ergonomic hand tool solutions which all recipients will enjoy, whether they are professionals or ambitious DIYers. Rather than delicate chocolate, these "steel assistants" can communicate a variety of messages regarding their significance for the holidays. "The right tool makes everything so much easier!" or "Good luck, go for it!" or simply "Good work, keep it up!". Gifts which convey meaning are something special. The exclusive set composition of the limited-edition "Special Edition" version comprising 24 premium hand tools encompasses various screwdrivers from the SoftFinish® electric and PicoFinish® electric ranges, as well as various VDE-tested pliers, stripping tools, a voltage tester, 12 bits in the Wiha FlipSelector with a bit holder, a switch cabinet key, and the clever Stubby magazine bit holder. A Sortimo L-Boxx is included to ensure orderly tool storage. Thus, it features a targeted and user-friendly selection of professional hand tools, perfect for electricians and ambitious DIYers who place value on safety and their own well-being.

After opening all 24 doors, the new owners of the "Standard" variant will be just as pleased with their complete tool set including L-keys, SoftFinish® and PicoFinish® screwdrivers, precision mechanics diagonal cutters, and a bit set housed in the FlipSelector. There are 23 small assistants useful for performing all common DIY tasks. In addition, the "final" tool bag on Christmas Eve provides the suitable storage solution for all the contents.

Wiha is also offering three specially assembled gift boxes as Christmas presents: the XLSelector Bitbox saves space and time with its range of bits, bit holder, and bit ratchet for powerful fastening. The 14-piece SoftFinish® gift set features screwdrivers of various sizes and profiles, two Stubby designs, and a Soft-Finish® bottle opener as a "special treat". The patented ergonomic handle concept is endorsed by AGR e.V. (Aktion Gesunder Rücken e.V – Healthy


Back Association.) and ensures that work is kind to hands and muscles while significantly boosting efficiency when working. The bit range of the 65-piece MicroBit set is ideal for model-making, precision and electronics work and covers all common small drive sizes. The ESD precision handle, which is also enclosed in the package, is particularly suitable for fastening tasks on sensitive and electrostatically charged parts, while the bit ratchet enables powerful fastening even in very confined spaces. Each package comes prepacked in a high quality gift box.
