I have always liked the Knipex pliers.

The Knipex Mirco Cobra is just under 5 inches!
Knipex 87 01 125 Cobra Pliers



I have carried a multi-tool with me daily for years and find them very useful.
The Knipex Micro Cobra and a multi-tool maybe a very handy combo to have.

I'm going to order one and see what they are like.

Anyone else have the Knipex Micro Cobra?
Hope you find our website helpful.

they are on the higher end of prices for hand tools, but are well worth it and backed by a lifetime guarantee. just hope you don't leave them under that last dishwasher you worked on.   :bonk:

I have not found many places on line that carry the Micro Cobra.
I will be ordering mine from here.

I once left a pair of pliers under a free standing range. I called the customer later that same day to ask them to look for it. They said they looked, but did not see it.

I was back to work on that same range over a year later and guess what. I found my pliers under the range, just were I left it. :)

I also once had my multi-tool go missing for a week. I had no idea were I could have left it. Went back to put a part in a range and when I pulled the range out there was my multi-tool on the floor behind the range.

I just placed a order for...

8701 125 Knipex Micro Cobra

8701 180 Knipex 7" Cobra

8701 250 New Wide Opening Knipex 10" Cobra

I should have them in a few days. I already know what to expect from the 7" & 10" Knipex Cobra, but I'm really interested in seeing what the Micro Cobra is like.

Klein Journeyman's crimping pliers

Oh sure, I do have some tools from them. They are ok too, but there pliers still are not as good as the Knipex Cobra in my opinion.

i agree with AJ, I do own some Klein tools as well, but they do not compare to the quality of Knipex. Hands down the best hand tools made.
