Count On Tools is repeating their very popular 30% promo on PB Swiss Tools this year. This is their biggest sale of the year.
But before I talk about their Black Friday sale, let’s talk about an exclusive pre-sale that we worked out with them. They offered to give ToolGuyd readers a first shot at the sale, and while it’s not a lot higher, I was able to convince them to bump up the discount for you guys, to 32%.
I bought a LOT of tools from them last year, and there are a few items on my wishlist that I hope to find the time to order this time around.
Their inventory is shipped out on a “first come, first served” basis. Last year, I quickly received more than half of the tools I ordered, and the remainder followed a couple of weeks later. They had to wait for a resupply from Switzerland. Plus, I ordered some specialty tools that they probably don’t regularly keep on-hand.
In other words, ordering earlier might mean you get your new tools earlier.

Note: We do not have any affiliate relationship with Count On Tools. We’ve chatted throughout the years, and I’ve mentioned their Black Friday deals in the past. This is the first time we’ve talked about an “early bird” deal, but it sounded good to me.
I was very satisfied with my order with them last year, and have no hesitations in recommending them. Keep in mind that you might have to wait for some parts of your order, as they can’t keep everything in stock, and it’s hard to predict which tools will be high-volume sellers during this very popular deal. They were good to communicate with.
Here’s a look at some of our past PB Swiss Tool reviews and previews, in case you need some ideas. Links are to previous ToolGuyd posts about the the tools.
PB Swiss has some new precision screwdrivers out. I nagged Count On to get these up and listed before the sale goes live.
I bought one of these interchangeable shaft screwdriver sets last year, and it’s held up well. It’s pricey, but fantastically well-made.
I’m probably going to buy these cross-handle ball hex drivers in 4mm, 5mm, and 6mm sizes. I wish that they were also available in imperial sizes.
A stubby PB Swiss Insider screwdriver with pull-out bit cartridge?! Of course I bought one.
I LOVE PB Swiss color-coded ball hex keys. They’re simply the best I have ever used, with perfect fitment every time.
I splurged on a ratcheting screwdriver last year, but not on the high-priced set, just the driver. Well, the driver and some loose bits I was ordering anyways.
I’m not having an easy time finding this T-handle bit holder on Count On Tools’ site. It’s a great tool, and it has on-board bit storage.
I don’t have the tool in front of me, but luckily I was able to read it from my review:
Update: It seems to be discontinued, but if you ask nicely enough they could check to see if there are any left in the Swiss warehouse.
I love these BitBlock bit holders. And all my PB Swiss bits. There are a mix of bits in this origanizer.
PB Swiss hex bit sockets – more accurately called hex sockets since they’re one-piece sockets – are superb. I just wish they were available in inch sizing too.
This stubby bit holder sees a lot of use. It’s much less expensive than the stubby Insider, because it doesn’t come with any bits.
These precision screwdrivers are just okay. I’m looking forward to seeing how the new style compares.
I use their technician screwdriver quite a bit. I bought another one, for my wife, and a blue one that has smaller screwdriver sizes. That bit is double-ended and is magnetically retained. There’s also a new mini Insider that comes with ore than one double-ended bit.
This is their Bike Tool.
I got my first taste of PB Swiss tools thanks to Small Parts and Amazon clearance pricing. Not everything shown here is PB Swiss. The red-handled MultiCraft screwdrivers, and most of the tools on the bottom right corner are all PB Swiss. Those funky mini screwdrivers on the bottom are small-sized cross-handle Torx. Those little Torx screwdrivers see a lot of use.
This is the Insider 2.
And here’s the Insider 3.
There’s also a more basic PB Swiss Tools Insider, one of the first tools I ever reviewed on ToolGuyd. I bought a second one last holiday season, in blue. That original Insider is great, but the end cap can unscrew as I’m using the screwdriver. For that reason, the newer-style Insiders, while pricier, see a little more use, or at least personal favor.
I also bought the long-shaft version of the Insider 3 ratcheting screwdriver, and it’s worked out well.
