Was about to jump but see the long nose pliers do not have a cutter. Still a decent deal though for USA-made hand tools

Price seems good for quality tools. In for one. Unfortunately my tool bag got stolen and I am slowly replacing the stolen tools. Also considering the 5 piece set on Amazon is 72 dollars this is a good deal imo

This is actually a pretty good deal. If you bought each of these tools separately on Amazon right now, it'd run you:

Channellock 526 6.5-Inch Slip Joint Plier: $9.94 [amazon.com] (lowest ever $5.20)
Channellock 337 7-Inch Diagonal Cutting Plier: $17.97 [amazon.com] (lowest ever $9.46)
Channellock 3017 Long Nose Plier, 8-Inch: $19.28 [amazon.com] (lowest ever $9.99)
Channellock 420 1-1/2-Inch Jaw Capacity 9-1/2-Inch Tongue and Groove Plier: $13.97 [amazon.com] (lowest ever $7.94)

Total: $61.16

Even if you had been picking each of the above up at their lowest prices ever (which would have required that you be watching these since 2008, according to the C's), you would have ended up spending $32.59, which is only $2.38 cheaper than this price.

True, but to be fair, the set does come with diagonal cutters as well.

If you've never used Channellock pliers: They are excellent tools. They are much better machined than low budget pliers, which makes them smoother and easier to use. I've had a set for 25+ years, and I have lots of Harbor Freight pliers, too. Either will get the job done, but the Channellocks are a pleasure to use.

Unfortunately I had to return mine. I have a lot of other Channllocks that are great quality, but when I got home with this set and opened it, I realized all 4 pieces had many sharp, unfinished edges, rust around the hinges, and the finish was chipped in some places on the cutters.

Amazon is not a good place for tools yet though, IMO

Why do you say that? I've done a lot of comparison shopping for tools across a lot of retailers, both online and at brick and mortar, and Amazon often has the best deals (provided they carry the tool); I'd say more than 50% of the time. Granted the deals are usually better for power tools on Amazon than hand tools, but even the hand tool prices are on par or within a dollar or so of other retailers.

The main reason I go elsewhere for a tool is if it tends to be counterfeited, which Amazon definitely has a problem with. This happens more with electronic tools though. For example, I'd probably opt for ordering from an authorized seller directly for things like Mitutoyo digital calipers or Fluke meters.

I see what you mean. I have looked for tools in the past and not found them available.

Ah yeah, they definitely don't have the best selection. Seems like they usually have at least the type of tool you want by the brand you're looking for, but they often won't have all the various models, which doesn't cut it when you've done research and know what you want.
