Every now and then I get an email saying something about how a brand has a new website that blah blah blah blah blah.
Who cares, right?
To be frank, it always seems so boring. Why would I want to write an entire post about how a tool brand revamped their site?
Well, a few weeks ago Wiha USA tweeted at us about their redesigned website.
My contact with Wiha so far has been one-sided. Their sales manager left a couple of comments on ToolGuyd, but I’ve sent them several unanswered emails over the years. So when they contacted me via Twitter, I didn’t ignore the site redesign news as I normally would.

I took a look, and…. WOW.
I said as much in my reply:
@WihaToolsUSA At first glance it looks FAR better than before. Thumbs up! Please email me when you have a chance, all mine to you bounced.

Not to sound negative, but their previous website sucked. In no uncertain terms, it was clunky, sometimes hard to navigate, and difficult to search. It was lousy.
I wouldn’t say that the current Wiha Tools USA website is stunning or spectacular, but it’s pretty decent looking, and usability is MUCH improved. It is simply leaps and bounds better than before.
Yep, today’s a slow news day, but the Wiha USA site was so bad before that I feel the redesign is worth a mention.
As for the brand, I own lots of Wiha tools – a set of their full-sized SoftFinish screwdrivers, MagicRing ball hex key sets, a couple of T-handle hex drivers, 3K ergonomic screwdrivers (that review was by contributor Stephen K), a lot of precision screwdrivers, a multi-bit precision screwdriver from KC Tool, and a single pair of precision pliers that I misplaced months ago.
I can’t say I have ever been disappointed with a Wiha tool purchase. I bought most of my Wiha tools from Amazon.

If you check out the new site, are there any Wiha tools that catch your eye for review or giveaway interest?
