Just get the one that mec is selling.

The reviews on mec are terrible for it?

Okay, you win this round. I got my cutter back when mec was still selling Park stuff. That Filzer thing seems pretty dodgy.

I ended up buying the set of three off Amazon (was near the price of two).

They are very well built and I look forward to using them.

Thread Bump.

I received a set of Wera screw drivers from KMS Tools today. Box said Made in Czech Rep... So many slotted screw drivers.  The insulated slotted might be good for electrical work.  Unsure about the slotted with hex helper on them though.  Maybe should've went with the 12 driver set. Who knows.

Also ordered a set of 3 Knipex Plier Wrenches off amazon.  Interested to see where those are made now.

They're built like a tank and if my girls need tools, they'll be around for their children.

I thought about getting one of their multi-bit drivers but mixed reviews on amazon.

Might've been handy around the house but dropping and losing bits sounds expensive.  Plus they're generally bulkier than a single set.

I think it really depends on where you are. In a shop situation then yeah, single bit drivers make sense but on a job site multi bit drivers can be way easier to deal with

Those 3-pak Knipex tools have "Made in Germany" stamped/cast/forged into the tools.

I see the electricians at work using a Klein multi-driver or an insulated flat head all the time.
