Klein Adds Two New Long-Nose Pliers To Its Journeyman(TM) Line of Comfort-Grip Tools
CHICAGO, IL - July 2003 - Klein Tools has added two, side-cutting, long-nose pliers to its Journeyman(TM) line of premium tools for trade professionals.
The two new long-nose pliers (Cat. Nos. J203-6 and J203-7) measure 6-5/8" (168 mm) and 7-1/8" (181 mm) in overall length. They join the existing 8-1/2" (216 mm) long-pliers previously introduced by Klein.
Journeyman pliers feature a state-of-the-art, dual-material handle design that gives the tool a better, more comfortable grip without sacrificing handle strength or durability. The soft, outer-surface handle material feels more comfortable in the hand and provides a firmer grip. The harder, black material on the inner-surface and handle ends is designed for extra toughness and durability in harsh work environments.
The new long-nose pliers also feature side-cutting knives at the hinge for cutting wire; induction hardening of those knives for long tool life; knurled jaws for bending and forming wire; a hot-riveted joint for smooth action with no handle wobble; a contoured thumb area with a flared thumb rest for added comfort and a positive feel; and color-coded yellow handles for quick tool identification.
In addition to the new 6-5/8" and 7-1/8" long-nose pliers, Klein offers 15 other Journeyman tools: two heavy-duty long-nose pliers; six side-cutting pliers; four diagonal-cutting pliers; one pair of pump pliers; one high-leverage cable cutter; and one crimping/ cutting tool. Manufactured of custom, U.S.-made tool steel, the Journeyman tools carry a lifetime warranty.
