Tekton, a hand tool brand that has been strengthening itself these past few years with new tools and great customer service, mostly offers relabeled tools.
These new Tekton screwdrivers are a little different, in how they are made in the USA, but with the handle being completely designed in-house by Tekton designers and engineers.
Everyone at Tekton seems to gush with pride every time the subject of these screwdrivers come up. They’re proud of their efforts and what they’ve come out with, and it shows. The result? Awesome ergonomics.
Tekton sent over a set of their new USA-made screwdrivers for review, and while the review isn’t quite ready yet, I can tell you that these drivers are quite nice. I was a little hesitant about the shape of the handles, but they turned out to be extremely comfortable.
These new Tekton screwdrivers have a tri-lobe handle shape design, which provides a secure grip for higher torque applications, while also being comfortable and ergonomic.
Their handles are shaped in such a way that they can also be finger-spun for rapid turning of loose fasteners.
The end caps have clear size markings for easier identification.
Tekton says that the shafts and tips are made from a high strength premium chrome molybdenum steel with precisely sized tips for an exact fit in fasteners.
The screwdrivers are finished via a hot black oxide process that provides flake-free corrosion resistance.

2pc stubby set for $8
4pc set for $17
8pc set for $25
10pc set for $30

I think that the 8-piece set offers the greatest value, and should cover all of most users’ Phillips and slotted screwdriver needs.
