I was just browsing SK’s website and noticed that their 2-piece compound pliers set is currently on sale. The set will set you back about $40 plus ~$9 shipping, not too bad given that the set retails for $60-65.
Alternatively, you may want to check out Gearwrench’s compound pliers set that sells for about $38 via Amazon.
Edit: Thanks to a GJ member’s comments, it has come to our attention that the compound pliers that are on sale are of the ~10″ long variety. SK does offer a set of 13″ pliers at a higher price, and 13″ is the size of Gearwrench compound pliers that are currently available.
