This is a good tool to have in your tool box for those times when you don't want to scratch shiny new parts.

Not just a slip joint

I've been looking for a good pair of "soft touch" pliers and these are very sturdy, pretty much your standard slip-joint, but with nice I believe nylon replaceable grips. They are made in Japan. Very pleased!

Great for violin bow work.

I rehair a lot of violin bows. Oftentimes the silver ferrule, which needs to be removed from the bow as part of the job, is too tight a fit to be pulled off by hand. So I used to grab a pair of pliers and a piece of leather to pad them, to keep from marring the silver. The plastic jaws on these pliers work much better. The "V-groove" in the pliers fit most ferrules very well, and the plastic grips better than leather. Definitely a good addition to my tool kit.

Every bow repair person should have a pair of these. I often come across ferrules that have been grabbed with pliers with no padding, (by incompetent repair people), resulting is scratched and deformed silver.

Helpful for certain tasks

These "soft touch" pliers are better than using a regular pliers on sensitive guitar parts. But, I had hoped the "soft" part would be softer than the hard plastic that it is.

These are great. I no longer need to wrap tape on a regular pair to keep from damaging anything that needs to be held tight when working with it. Thanks.

Handy Pliers

Man, could I have used these over the decades for all those applications when I scuffed and scarred screws and fixtures! Not just for guitar parts either. You can use them on a variety of things. The inserts are screwed in with countersunk screws too so, unlike slip-on nylon caps that others sell, they aren't going anywhere when you use them. Very handy.
