These are made in the Chech Republic, not China. It is a German company and German engineering. While it can be argued, these are some of the best insulated screwdrivers on the market.​
I see the confusion. These are made by Wera, not Wiha (as you were referring to in your reply). While they are both German, they are different companies.
Enough about China, this set is from Czechia (and only the SQ1 is supposed to be green)

Manufacturer Part #: 05347777001

Country of Origin:
🇨🇿 Made in Czech Republic

The #2 square is supposed to be green (like the #1 square) and not red, so you can tell apart in your tool belt.

Someone in China manufacturing must have misread the 'German engineering' specs. Then again, even the color scheme is Chinese.

Probably fine for the homeowner that is unlikely to play with anything over 240volts, but selling Chinese quality at German quality prices is not going to last much longer.
same PN 5347777001 on other sites is green for both square drives (like here at Tool Discounter) [tooldiscounter.com]... wonder if it's Amazon being a turd and getting their own garbage made or something else going on.
either way absolutely hate Amazon these days... it's a real shitshow.

then, to add... question on Amazon says they were all red???
"
Question: On the package I've received, the #1 Square is red color rather than green as shown in the picture. Why?
Answer: Square/Robertson head screwdrivers are color coded. #1 should be green. Red is reserved for the #2 size. If the screwdriver is sized correctly and the handle is stamped correctly, this is likely an error that occurred in the manufacturing process.

Quote from ToolDeals :
No, these were 'some of the best insulated screwdrivers on the market' with the price steadily dropping. And the real issue was that it had to be uncovered, beginning with German employees, that Wiha had outsourced.... they did not publish it and can only presume the same future deceit with other items. It is prudent to just buy elsewhere... especially when your life depends on it.

You can buy them, while others and I will buy known quality.... with available recourse when not.
I see the confusion. These are made by Wera, not Wiha (as you were referring to in your reply). While they are both German, they are different companies.

Unless it has changed in the last few months, none of Wera's product line is made in China. Nearly all of their product line is made in the Czech Republic, with some of the really high end stuff maybe still made in Germany. All the Wera tools I have are made in the Czech Republic and the quality is fantastic.

Trust me, if they were charging German prices for German engineering and German production, you'd know it because the price tag would not be $30 for 6 screw drivers. Except Felo of course, which are easily my favorite screwdrivers (wood handled) and actually are made in Germany and you can get a set of 5 for $20. Nearly all of my Wiha screwdrivers are also made in Germany. The quality difference between Wiha and Wera is not noticeable.

Quote from ToolDeals :
You said it.... $30 for six of these and expecting German manufactured quality is beyond ludicrous. Sit tight and the price for all outsourced from Germany will continue to drop... just the same as outsourced from the USA that also reduced the quality for the same name brands did. Initially, like Sears did with Craftsman, they do sell for the same price for short term profits, but all have steadily dropped after users realize the quality also dropped.
Having an extensive collection of tools both made in Germany and """German engineered""" but made in the Czech Republic, it is unlikely you'd ever notice the difference. My Czech made, German engineered Weras are as good as any of my German made, German engineered Wiha tools. The Czech Republic/Slovakia (Czechoslovakia) has an extensive engineering and manufacturing history and I wouldn't hesitate to buy a tool made there as long as it was from a reputable company.

You have to understand that these factories are dealing with the same machining, the same metal, the same base materials and the same blueprints and files as any other factory, whether that factory is in Germany, the Czech Republic or in China. The difference is the factory in Germany has laws and quality of life expectations for its employees that have to be paid for and that cost goes to us, the consumer. China has no such labor protection. That doesn't mean the German designed tool made in China is worse than the German designed tool made in Germany, it just means it is cheaper because the guy putting the pieces together is getting paid 10 yuan ($1.50 USD) an hour and not 10 Euros ($12 USD) an hour. Taxes and tariffs can be a hell of a thing.

The country of origin really doesn't matter much these days. It could be Germany, it could be the Czech Republic, it could be Japan, it could be China. With a simple tool like a screwdriver, as long as you're buying from a reputable company, the product is going to be solid. I've been to China, I've seen how the sausage is made in that country and as long as they're doing the manufacturing for a reputable company that actually gives a damn about its name, it'll be fine. If it is just cheap Chinesium garbage for a no name company, of course it'll suck but even with a company like Makita, outsourcing to China would never give me even a second of pause because I trust Makita as a company. It is all about context.

I am lucky enough to have seen industrial manufacturing all over the world and very rarely have I encountered a situation where I've thought "this is just garbage quality", even in China. All things being equal would I prefer a made in the US, made in Germany, made in Japan tool? Yes. Of course. But in reality, things aren't equal and I have a shop full of Chinese made Makita tools that couldn't possibly be better to show for it.
