Probably though at that point just get another stubby bit holder screwdriver. From what I understand Wiha makes high quality bits and that's what you're paying for.

I have a ratcheting Milwaukee stubby screwdriver in my kitchen drawer and it's great.

Yes, you can put any standard 1" length 1/4" hex bits. I have one-- Wiha screwdrivers are some of the best.

Here's the same handle with a different assortment for cheaper-- and this version did drop to $12.23 in Feb 2019-- they go lower than the current price from time to time.

Who the hell is paying $20 for a cheaply built 6 head torx screwdriver with no warranty?

"Wiha Tools has the right to exclude bits, Tweezers and Ceramic Screwdrivers. These products are either consumable or wear easily. All torque tools are designed for 5,000 cycles or 1 year (whichever comes first)." <- Yeah real high quality....... also why Amazon doesn't mention any warranty with this product.

https://www.reddit.com/r/BuyItFor...a_anymore/ <- long post about $40 screw driver from Wiha failing and all the hoops he had to jump through before they'd do anything. Also how they treated him before they saw the reddit post and then tried to make things right.

Same price on eBay and shipping is free without joining the Prime club or without any minimum order value.

no way you are gonna be able to apply enough torque on such a small stubby screwdriver to use the larger torx bits.

You're basing your opinion on a company and their products from a 6 year old reddit post? The 1 year warranty is for the torque handle products. Even Snap-On only offers 1 year on torque wrenches. All the rest of the tools are lifetime, even the bits as far as I've seen. Can't comment on the tweezers or ceramic screwdrivers. I've had the same handle,drive-loc bits, ESD screwdrivers, and pliers for 15 years and never a problem. A coworker stripped one of his drive-loc bits and the exchanged it no questions asked.

Just because it is lowest from 2015 doesn't make it a good deal. $18 for a screwdriver!

You don't need tons of torque on every screw. I'm guessing you've stripped a lot of screw heads in your day.
