    It was handmade by a poster on the BCUSA forums.

    Update on my use of the Knipex pocket Cobra pliers (100).
    This past weekend they replaced my LM Multitool for almost every job!
    Gripping, holding, twisting and pulling items with ease. The plier's head angle was perfect for the jobs I did.
    I would not have bet on this a few weeks ago. I'll be ordering a second pair.
    Great pocket tool!

    [​IMG] .[​IMG] Just got my Cobra XS these are a very nice EDC pliars. For me, there is no need to find a sheath or anything else to put them in, this would be unnecessary bulk. They fit perfect in the small watch pocket most jeans have.

    I had the Knipex 87 01 125 Cobra Pliers 5 inch. I always thought the button lock was just a bit to fiddly on that small of a pliers. What I like most about the Cobra XS is they can be opened and set to the desired size easily with one hand, not possible, or at least not near as easy with the 125 red handle version. I also like the handles have no rubber coating. For pocket carry the smooth metal handles much easier slide in and out of a pocket.
