Hand tools: top brands and their specialities

Bahco, the inventor

In 1888, the Swede Johan Petter Johansson invented an adjustable pipe wrench, later called Swedish tongs. That was the forerunner for the water pump pliers. Four years later, the same Johan Petter Johansson invented a wrench whose jaw was adjustable by turning. This universal tool has since been known as Bahco. Innovative product development has always been the strength of the brand. Bahco products such as pliers, wrenches, screwdrivers and handsaws are characterized by user-friendliness and high efficiency. That’s why many professionals blindly choose tools with the ‘fish and hook’ logo.
