They went rusty – Mini Professional 5" Bent Nose Plier - Yellow Reviews

posted by legendofpedro on 12/02/2012 Certified Owner

Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

Pros:
Serrated grip matches up well. Handles are comfortable and seem fairly durable. Spring is nice and strong. Jaws move smoothly without requiring any lubrication.
Cons:
They went rusty after about a month (they were stored indoors in a normal environment).
Other:
The jaws are ground to an oblique angle at the end, rather than a point. You won't be stabbing yourself with these, but this may not be what you want. They're quite small; the handles are 70mm long and 70mm apart at their widest. The jaws are 40mm long (the bent section is 14mm long). The bend angle is approximately 45*.
Bottomline:
Would be a good deal considering the price if they hadn't rusted. The machining is good, but the material is bad. I have given them a light coating of oil which should improve them slightly.
