Best electrical needle nose
I’ve had this pair of needle nose now for 6 years and they are just as sturdy as they day I got them, they can take linesman’s place when working with 14 and sometimes 12 gauge wire splicing, stripping and much more

    Easily the best pliers ever, but don't get this one with the wire stripper.
    I've had these pliers for a little bit now and I must say that they are very well-crafted and stout. They're pretty much skinny linemans pliers. They grip well and the handle is very comfortable. My only quarrel with them is the wire stripper. I find that it gets in the way more than it helps considering its location in the middle of the cutting blade. I recommend the needle nose with an unobstructed cutting surface, but these are still an incredible pair of pliers and I can tell they'll last me many years to come!

      [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Handy to have one less tool up in an attic. Can really lean on them.

        Amazing tool
        [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I'm really happy I got this. I needed neddle nose pipers and strlpers, then I saw this and picked up the tool. I haven't regretted my purchase, and I would definitely tell someone to pick up a pair.

            Not a Fan
            Klein does make durable, functional tools. This pair of needlenose pliers is one of my least favorite for one reason, the 12 gauge wire stripping hole on the cutters. This "stripper" is more annoying that helpful, even as an electrician apprentice. I find that it doesnt work well stripping 12gauge wire, at least not as well as a normal pair of strippers. And the hole's placement in the middle of the cutting edge makes cutting romex a two cuts job, not just one clean cut. Durable and comfortable, but irritating.

              Long-nose pliers
              The Journeyman series is a great line from Klein. They have a better grip than the traditional Klein pliers. Made in America and reasonably priced.
