The Germans still make some very high quality stuff.
These guys sell em in the USA.
Some of the tools are specials for working on German cars, but others
are just very nice hand tools
Klein Tools are pretty decent- not top shelf, but some of the best
commonly available screwdrivers, snips, pliers and so on. Usually
available at electrical distributors.
Some Proto tools are still high quality.
I really like Klenk snips- I think they are much better than Wiss for
aviation style snips-
For woodworking tools, there has been a renaissance of high quality,
made in USA stuff-
And these beautiful planes, as good, if not better, than anything ever
