Over at Amazon, some of our favorite Wera screwdrivers are on sale, presumably for a limited time.
Kenneth brought these deals to our attention (thank you!), and although the pricing isn’t quite as good as last year’s Black Friday deals, they’re lower than what I paid for them a couple of years ago.
First up is the Wera “Kraftform Kompakt 25″ multi-bit screwdriver set. It comes with a removable and extendable locking bit holder that you can pop into a cordless drill or screwdriver, and 6 1/4” hex insert bits.
The screwdriver handle is a little chunky, but comfortable to use, and the built-in bit storage is a nice feature. It pops open with a press of a button at the rear of the handle.
You also get a handy little belt pouch.
Included screwdriver bits: Phillips #1, #2, #3, Slotted 4.5mm, 5.5mm, 6.5mm.
Deal Price: $27.59
Wera’s Lasertip Kraftform Plus screwdrivers are the bee’s knees. They’re comfortable and have great fastener engagement. If you’re looking for an upgraded screwdriver set to replace some cheap hardware store drivers, this is the set to get.
Most people love the handle styling, but not everyone is a fan.
The set gives you Phillips #1, #2 and Slotted 1/8″ (no Lasertip), 5/32″, 7/32′, and 1/4″ screwdrivers. You also get a plastic wall-mountable rack.
Deal Price: $28.02
I’d like to see the pricing dip a little lower on these deals, but there’s a chance that we won’t. If you recall, some added tariffs have been slapped onto German hand tool imports. I don’t recall where these are made, but they could be affected by this.
What I’m trying to say is that these are very good deals, but I’m trying to use cautious language, as these might not be the best deals we’ll see on these tools before the end of the year. There haven’t been consistent enough patterns to allow for high-confidence predictions. Still, I figured it’s best to tell you about the deals and leave it to your judgement.
There are some more Wera tools included in this little-advertised “Big Savings on Amazon” Wera promo.

There’s no mention as to when the promo pricing will end.
There’s also a $10 off $50 worth of certain Bosch accessories. https://smile.amazon.com/gp/aw/promotion/landingpage/AXTL3169IXXMH
Love the Kraftform Kompakt 25, but heed our wishes, Wera: we need it to be ratcheting, too! The 27 is close, but also no cigar. Ironically, the closest thing they have to what I want is actually their pistol-grip offering. The three features I want are:
1) In-handle bit storage
2) Compact (either stubby shaft, or even better, bitholder shaft like this one)
Bonus points if it could also be stainless/INOX; I love my little Easter Egg one, but alas it’s not ratcheting.
They are made in Czech Republic as most Wera products are (Czech is on the German border in the east/south) don’t know about German import taxes to the US(I’m in Europe) but that would probably be the same for the whole EU.
Don’t love the handle but LOVE the lasertip in my Wera PZ2 Driver! Very nice
As most Wera products were. COO is Taiwan on a lot of newer Wera offerings (KC Tools shows COO).
No problem. Gave me a good excuse to get some wera.
The red insulated screwdriver set from Wera is about the same cost. Other than getting a larger flathead, is there any advantage to getting the green handled screwdrivers over the fully insulated ones?
