Channel Lock pliers certainly seem to be getting positive ratings. Unfortunately, the set I received was of poor quality and workmanship:
1. The metal finish was rough to the touch in certain spots
2. All pliers sloppily covered in a protective varnish (with metal shavings stuck in the finish)
3. Oil coming through the hinge joints - a tell tale sign of low tolerance manufacturing
If one were to place any of the pliers in this set next to similar products from Knipex, NWS, Klein Tools, Milwaukee, or Dewalt it would be very clear to see the Channel Lock pliers were the lowest quality of the bunch. I really wanted to like these American Made products. Really disappointing. I returned the set.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by WildBill Good finish
I have not used these tools yet. The finish is good and operation as I put them in my tool box was good.
Channel Lock pliers have been in my tool box since I was in the Air Force in the 60's.

Bought this set solely because it was made in the U.S.A. and the expected quality of the set. I was not disappointed. Very happy with my purchase even though there are less expensive choices out there.

Great quality, for the price. You pay for what you get, so spent the extra and get quality

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Gsavage great deal and high quality
Wire cutters work great, needle nose are very strong and better than others I've used. Both slip joint pliers are solid and adjustments are easy and fluid.
