I have several of the black oxide version USA wrenches. I never use them, as I prefer the chrome plated, for a few reasons.

The black oxide looks cool at first, but aren't practical (unless you work in an industrial environment where you can't risk chrome chipping or flaking off the tool and falling into the equipment).

First, if you use them to work on cars or engines, you can't see the black under the hood. Making it harder to put it on the end of the fastener. And if you drop a wrench, forget about every finding it again with the black wrench dropping into the black hole of a dark engine compartment.

Second, they are grease magnets. Chrome plated tools wipe off easy with a rag, the black oxide are sort of porous and grab and hold grease and oil. Also, the black oxide starts getting surface rust, unless you keep them coated with WD-40 or light oil. Which then gets on your hands the next time you use them.

These are special purpose wrenches, and unless you work in an industry that uses them, you would be better off with a set of regular chrome plated wrenches.

Also, if you search "Craftsman Professional Black Oxide Wrench", you can see a bunch of the open stock pieces for a couple bucks each. I built a set of these one-by-one, with surprise points, for basically free.
