Default small torgue sockets

Hey guys, happy Saturday to you.

Just a fast question on the small torgue wrenches that you use for moving pocket clips or replacing scales.

Can you post a link for a set, I haven't been able to find any this small.

Thank you

If you want to go cheap there is Harbor Freight has the 7 Pc Torx Tamper Proof Hex Key Set for $6. If you want quality Wera or Wiha.

I bought a Kershaw driver set. It came with the three torx sizes needed for most knives and a slot and phillips bit. The T6 bit stripped on first use. I called Kershaws customer service to get a replacement bit. They blew me off saying I had to ship the tool to them at my expense so they could inspect it. Then they would decide if they would replace the bit or charge me for a new one. I thanked them and called Amazon customer service. They told me to keep the tool and sent me a new one.

Since then I have picked up a couple of the precision screwdriver sets that have 60+ different bits. They work great for knives, phones and everything else with the mini weird heads.

anyone using Wiha or Wera can recommend a set? i think Wera and Wiha are both German made. although, looks like there's a Wiha USA (not sure if some of the tools are made here in the USA)

I have more Kershaw folders and fixed blades then I care to count. Great knives but the driver tool sucks. So does the customer service person I talked to. I've heard plenty of good stories on Kershaw CS, mine just isn't one of them.

If you haven't found it yet, here it is:

You might need two if the pivot screw has holes on both sides.

Great price but the reviews are not very good.
Seems that the bits are not hardened and do not last.

I have two different generations of that screwdriver, and I think it's very useful. It doesn't see hard use and lasts for me. I use it to unscrew clips, take apart knives, and sometimes unscrew scope rings after torque driver.
