Kobalt pliers are nothing special, but they get the job done. Right now at Lowes this 5-piece pliers set in on sale for $15.
For $3 apiece you get 6-inch long-nose pliers, 6-inch diagonal cutters, 6-inch slip joint pliers, 7-inch linesman pliers, and 8-inch tongue-and-groove pliers.
These pliers wouldn’t be our first choice for heavy-duty tasks, but that’s mostly because of their smallish sizes.

You could do a lot better with any number of brands, such as Channellock, Knipex, and NWS, but not for $15.
