Patented push button system (view larger).Quality in Every DetailSometimes we give our pliers a really hard time. We try to destroy them to find out what makes them good and long-lasting. Because we don’t want to leave anything to chance, we take a long, careful look. The steel Knipex uses is precisely hardened with a maximum of 0.8 percent carbon and defined parts of chromium and vanadium, guaranteeing optimum cutting performance and service life — even though it requires special production and costs a bit more. But our high product demands require this.The rivet of our high-leverage diagonal cutter also has to stand up to a lot of stress. That’s why we literally give it backup: we forge it straight onto the pliers. This means extra effort as we have to precision mill the rivet to a few hundredth millimeters. But satisfied users are worth this effort.Knipex also looks closely at the small details. The angles, the sharpness, the hardness, the toughness of the cutting edges. The precision and smooth movement of the joint. The handle design and the finish. We keep reviewing these subjects, we research, we test, and we improve our pliers.About KnipexHeadquartered in Wuppertal, Germany, Knipex is an independently-owned family enterprise steeped in tradition and specializing in the manufacturing of high-quality pliers.

- I Adore Knipex pliers! These feel great in the hand are fast and easy to adjust with the push button design and have the fiercest grip of any plier hands down. I like Channel Locks and support them as they are one of the few tool manufacturers who stayed in the USA but even I will admit that Knipex’s cobra pliers have them beat. I especially like the design that prevents them from pinching your fingers while using them.If you are wondering or hesitating because of the price don’t. It is very simple, these pliers are actually hardened! An immensely rare commodity in this throw-away soft steel manufacturing world. You can run a file over the teeth and the file will simply slide over them. If you try that with any import junk you pick up at Walmart you’ll see that the file digs right into the soft steel. This means that when you try to use these pliers on say a pipe or not that they will actually grip into the metal and turn it rather than rounding off and slipping like you used to with soft metal pliers.Can’t praise these enough. A tool that actually works, crazy. 5 stars! ^_^
- I have been using this 6 inch Knipex Cobra Pliers since receiving it from Amazon back in Sept. 2013.This pliers is a perfect companion to the multitool that I also cary daily at work. After having it for a few days and seeing just how handy it was I started searching for a sheath for it. At first I was excited to find on Amazon the Knipex 00 19 72 LE Sheath.Knipex Tools 00 19 72 LE Tool Roll Empty, BlackEven though the Knipex sheath seemed a bit expense the description made it sound like it would be a custom fit for the 6 inch Knipex pliers.After receiving the Knipex sheath I discovered that it was to bulky and to large for my Knipex 6 inch pliers. The Knipex sheath was so large that my Knipex Pliers would slip out the holes that where in the bottom sides of the sheath.After much trial and error with a number of different sheath I was able to find one that fit the 6 inch Knipex Cobra Pliers perfectly, the Ripoffs CO-02.The Ripoffs CO-02 has a belt clips that works perfectly for me, but if you prefer a belt loop on your sheath Ripoffs makes the same size one with a belt loop instead of a belt clip. Not only does the Ripoffs CO-02 sheath fit the 6 inch Knipex Cobra Pliers perfectly, they are also dirt cheap compared to the Knipex factory sheath.My Knipex Cobra Pliers gets used and abused on a daily bases. Has a great finish that seems to hold up very well to fighting off rust as my pliers gets wet a lot. The grips are also perfect as they provide just the right amount of grip and as of now have not pulled loose from the metal handles.I have worked with larger Knipex Cobra pliers in the past and have been very happy with the quality of them. This smaller 6 inch model seems to have the exact same build of quality and I’m 110% satisfied with them.I will be adding photos of my Knipex 6 inch Cobra pliers along with the Ripoffs sheath to the amazon product page. I hope you find this review and photos helpful.Edited, Sept 30th 2014One year later, still used daily and still going strong, both the pliers and pouch!
- Use them all the time, more comfortable than their American counterparts. Great grip, use the for big rigid conduits, up to 4″. Put all my weight onto them, while it may only be 170 pounds, I have really pounded on these pliers with no slippage. I use them to tighten couplings in the threading machine without incident, I say this because a Klein pair met their demise this way. They are heavier than your standard 480 big azz channel locks. I like them a lot. I use them a lot. They get borrowed a lot. Lots of compliments.
- Knipex are the best brand of pliers I’ve used and this small pair is no exception. They have every bit of the quality of the larger versions. This isn’t a novelty tool meant to be forgotten in the back of the junk drawer. The locking mechanism is secure. I don’t use them much, but they are nice for tight spaces. I recently used them to hold onto a nut under the dash of my pickup to unscrew a bolt. I probably could have used a larger pair, but this made the job easier. Since they are so portable, I carried them with me on a ride on the four wheeler and used them to undo and redo a loop of barbed wire to open a stuck gate. The Leatherman I have has nice pliers and would have worked for the fence, but they do not compare to the quality and biting teeth of the Knipex. If you want or need the best, there are few options that match this.
- Love ’em. I’m on my second pair. The first pair I had were made by Knipex and re-branded as Craftsman and sold by Sears. They were the same thing except they had an additional vinyl grip over top of the kinda of orange peel texture of the Knipex. They were so nice they walked off on the job, so I got this pair. I have no complaints, they work great and are more adjustable than the standard tongue and groove style Channelocks. The teeth and shape of the jaws are also better than standard Channelocks. They get a much better purchase on things and the pliers are more easily adjusted with one hand.
- Don’t waste your time buying or looking at any other brand. These will not disappoint and will be around for as long as you are. I have probably a dozen different types of channel lock type pliers in my toolbox that are now not touched. Jaws will grab like a pipe wrench or a crescent wrench with exceptional grip. Best pliers I have ever owned in over 30 years of various mechanical work including aerospace, construction, and heavy machinery.
