Pretty handy. These little screwdrivers are made by hand in Elemen'tary's small London workshop. This is the compact version of the standard No 1 Screwdriver. The Elemen'tary design is copied from originals created by a cabinet maker who was unable to find a set of modern tipped screwdrivers that met his requirements for quality, comfort and simplicity. The smaller ball handle and shorter shaft are ideal for smaller work and getting into tight spaces without sacrificing good grip.
Like all Elemen'tary screwdrivers it is designed for good ergonomic fit. It is made from beech and finished by dipping in linseed oil. The natural wood surface feels good in your hands and, unlike varnished or rubberized handles, gives good purchase without encouraging blisters. The initial matte appearance will darken with age and become polished with use. The handles are fitted with a heavy aluminum collar. The bits fit snuggly, avoiding the wobbly problems of other screwdrivers with interchangable bits.
The screwdrivers are packaged in specially designed boxes with six bits (philips 1/2, pozi-driv 1/2 and flat 5mm/6mm). The high quality bits are of a standard size which can be substituted for other varieties and easily replaced when worn out.
Made in the UK.
