No. 1 Screwdriver, Lg Handle

$42.00

This unique and beautiful designer Screwdriver is hand-made in England. It has a solid beech handle and a solid brass ferrule. Its handle is ergonomically designed to fit comfortably in the hand so it can be used for long periods of time. It comes complete with six different interchangeable bits, suitable for most different screwdriving applications. It could be the ideal Christmas present especially for someone who is usually hard to please. It has a wooden handle that is turned in the shape of a vintage turnscrew, so it won’t roll off your bench thanks to the flats. Fits in your hand like a baseball glove. The finish on the beech handle is oil; it’s tactile, like the finish on the Grace drivers — not slippery like a plastic screwdriver. The screwdriver chuck has an O-ring that grips your standard bits, even snapping them in place. Many of these bits have a small groove that receive the O-ring. The Elemen’tary driver also has a screw chuck that locks the bits in better than any other magnet or O-ring. This small knurled knob allows you to secure your bit so it won’t pull out of the tool. If you own any four-way screwdriver, you know how this is one of their major downsides. Elementary gets it right, however.
