I love KC tool, and have never been disappointed with a tool from them. They're known for top quality hand tools, mostly from Germany, but I do not know this tool, and have never owned one by this maker (in the Czech Republic), so I can't vouch for it personally. There are Amazon reviews of it, it's rated 4.6 out of 5 for 186 reviews, but there are some bad reviews. It looks like some were defective, but some buyers just didn't like this or that, and one just said he or she didn't like the bits included. It does at least look like KC makes it easy to return tools if there's a problem,

I was specifically looking for tools to include in an under-seat motorcycle tool kit where weight and bulk are at an extreme premium and versatility is critical. I have other similar tools (Wiha) that store bits in the handle, but they have maybe 16 bits, including Torx and some others I'd almost certainly never need for a motorcycle. This one is six bits and long and short shank lengths in one tool, probably everything you'd need in a screwdriver and nothing you don't in a compact package that fits in a belt pouch. It uses standard 1/4" bits, so you can swap some if you have specialized needs, and the bit-holder shaft can be removed and chucked in a drill.

Here's the deal, this MSRP shown on both KC Tool and Amazon is $53.61. Amazon currently (at this writing) has it for $42.13. For the holidays KC has it knocked down to $29... but it's out of stock right now, and as they sometimes do in these cases if you add it to your cart it shows another discount, to $26.10. They say that they're expecting it back in stock on December 14th, so it's certainly not a big delay if you're buying it for yourself. There is also currently a 10% discount code, "TOOLGUYD4LIFE", and that brings it down to $23.49. Shipping is currently free for purchase totals over $50, and it's easy to get above that if you start looking at their tools, but without that the cheapest (slowest) option has been between $5 and $6 for me when ordering one tool at a time, not a ripoff.

I'm on the fence about this one myself, so any feedback on the brand or this specific tool is more than welcome.

Steal deal. Vera is German but tools are made Czech. I own this and it's honestly even worth the $50 normal price.

This floats between 23-56 constantly and it's a no brainer at 23.

I actually posted it at 23 a few weeks back from amazon

I have this from a slickdeal earlier in the year or last year, it's quite nice. My only complaints with it would be a lack of grip on the handle (though I do find it ergonomic) and the connector that locks the bits in is wider than I'd like and with some kids toys prevents me from being able to use this screwdriver. The lack of grip is really a minor complaint and the other is a fairly minor limitation. The bits are high quality, the tool is very easy to use, convenient and quick to switch around. I highly recommend this screwdriver.

Do people like this better than the MegaPro (or Channellock branded version) screwdrivers?

In my opinion, having little experience with MegaPro, but experience with Channellock, I would saw I like these better. Good consistent quality. Own a bunch of Wera tools and I'm very satisfied. Fit and finish is high. Durable. Ergonomic (for *me* ~ can't speak for you).

I have it too, and it's good but honestly, Menards has a nice Lenox model for less than $15. Worth the $50? No tool like this is worth that much IMO. To each his own.

MegaPro is good too, I love mine. But this locks the bits in if that matters to you.

Thanks & repped for the post OP. Would order it if it had free shipping. I'm not in a rush so I'll wait for Amazon to hit the $24 mark again where I can get it w/ prime shipping.

Do they have something like this but ratcheting also? Figure that would be useful, a ratcheting screwdriver. Is that a thing or not really?

I once picked up a an advent calendar (crazy I know) of tools by this brand for my husband for a an amazing deal. (A slick deal of course.) He raved about the quality of the tools included to everyone. He still has them. And I'm always on the lookout for another deal on them. Thanks.

Screwdrivers without ratcheting ability make no sense.
