The German firm NWS (Nöthen Werkzeuge Solingen) makes tools that are widely recognized in Europe for exceptional quality and performance, but are little known on this side of the Atlantic. Their products are made to rigorous standards using premium materials and advanced manufacturing processes, but it is the innovative engineering that truly sets them apart.

Each tool is a careful refinement of a conventional design, integrating new features to make it more effective and efficient to use. The pliers and cutters are made of hardened tool steels with further induction hardening of cutting edges. The broad, contoured handles have grips composed of three different materials, creating a balance of cushioning for comfort, texture for grip and rigidity for support. This, combined with a remarkably smooth hinge assembly, lets you use the tool for longer periods and apply greater hand force with less strain or discomfort.

Intended for use by electricians, these tools are readily identified by their distinctive yellow-on-red handles; they share the advanced features of the general-purpose model, and are insulated to protect users from incidental contact with voltages of up to 1000VAC/1500VDC. Each tool is certified to comply with North American, European and international standards for insulated tools and is marked accordingly with the "double triangle" symbol of ASTM* F1505, VDE† and the "1000V" designation of IEC‡ 60900.

* ASTM: American Society for Testing and Materials
† VDE: Verband der Elektrotechnik, Elektronik und Informationstechnik
‡ IEC: International Electrotechnical Commission
