Wiha and Felo Screwdrivers

Posted on Tuesday, March 27th, 2012 at 10:35 am. Tweet

Wiha and Felo Screwdrivers

Felo and Wiha Essential Screwdriver Sets

It is spring cleanup time here at Carbide Processors and I’m going through the hand tools back in my personal shop. I have a little area set aside from the production areas or the lab. This is my one area where I can go test tools, make stuff, fix stuff and similar. Sometimes I get tired being in the office and just want to go back and get my hands dirty

Anyway, I took a good look at my screwdriver selection and it is pretty bad; old screwdrivers, cheap screwdrivers, screwdrivers that have been used as chisels.

Here is what I ordered as a replacement. You can see that I ordered both Wiha and Felo screwdrivers. Both companies make truly excellent products. I went with the Wiha sets because the quality and the prices are just excellent.

I went with the Felo because one set has really good wooden handles and I just love wooden handles.

I went with the Felo Ergonic set because sometimes I just really need to reef on a screwdriver. I also really like the Felo nonslip screwdriver tips.

So I sell screwdrivers and I can afford to buy good screwdrivers. This is what I picked as a basic set of screwdrivers. There are many duplicates here because sometimes I need two the same screwdriver and sometimes I have someone working with me.

Bottle Opener Showdown – Witte, Wiha, Wera, Felo, Gedore

Today is the ULTIMATE showdown of five different German-branded bottle openers. The bottle opener candidates are:

  • Witte 967 Maxxpro
  • Wiha 104703
  • Wera 1496
  • Felo 62405
  • Gedore 2979322

All of the bottle openers are made in Germany, with the exception of the Wera, which is made in the Czech Republic.

Witte

First, the Witte is the longest and fattest of the bunch, so it wouldn’t make a good keychain bottle opener. The handle appears to be the same one that is used for their MaxxPro line of screwdrivers. The light gray being a soft grip material and the light blue a hard plastic. The Witte can be used as either a push down or pull up opener. The MSRP at the time of this review is $9.00, which is the cheapest of the lot. It comes it at a weight of 94 grams, which is the second heaviest.

The handle feels exactly like any other of the Wiha drivers. The black being a soft grip material and the red a hard plastic. Comparing it to this Screwdriver you can see the mold is almost exactly the same. The bottle opener has a tapered design and looks to be the strongest of the lot. The MSRP is $12.98, the 2 nd most expensive. The Wiha is the heaviest opener at 108 grams.

It has the very recognizable Kraftform handle used on many of their drivers. The dark green is a soft grip material with the black being a hard plastic. I would say this bottle opener is the most aesthetically pleasing because of the brushed like metal finish. The design is also not as boxy as some of the other openers. MRSP is $10.76 which is right in the middle. The weight is 80 grams which is also right in the middle.

The Felo uses the handle from the Ergonic line of drivers. I don’t actually own any of the Felo Egonic drivers so this is my first time seeing one of these. One thing I noticed is that you can actually flex this handle unlike the other units. The opener has ridges for extra grip which is a nice touch. The notch on the top of the opener is what I assume is for hanging. MRSP is $13.97, which is the most expensive. The Weight is 57 grams, which is the 2 nd lightest.

Gedore

Out of all five the Gedore is the only that looks to be designed as a bottle opener. While the others used their driver handles the Gedore choose a different design with a small, flat or oval-shaped handle. This makes more sense for the job it is performing since screwdriver handles are designed to turn, but bottle opener handles are designed to pry. The metal also looks to be only one casted, with the other ones most likely being forged. MSRP is $10.00, which is the 2 nd cheapest. The weight is 48 grams, which is the lightest.

Testing

Since I used to make my own root beer, I decided to test these on some homemade bottles. In order to simulate a sufficient level of carbonation vinegar and baking soda in a mostly empty bottle. First I added 20ml of White Vinegar to the bottle and put it in the freezer until frozen. The reason for freezing the vinegar is to control the reaction with the baking soda such that the carbon dioxide is created as the vinegar melts. Next I added ½ tablespoon of baking soda and then capped the bottle. I did this 19 more times to get 20 and we will test each opener with four bottles.

Ready for Showdown!

Now let’s get to testing these. First up is the Witte. Using the Witte from the bottom I did have some trouble getting good engagement on the bottle. I believe due to the chrome finish of the metal, which caused the cap to slip. I had better results using the Witte from the top.

Witte versus bottle

The Wiha definitely felt like it was the strongest opener. It had very good engagement with the cap without and slippage. With the nice handle, it would be very low fatigue if opening a large number of bottles.

Wiha versus bottle

Next is the Wera. The curvature of the Wera unit was such that it conformed nicely to the neck of these bottles. No problems here opening these bottles.

Wera versus bottle

Next is the Felo. The ridges on the lip of the opener definitely helped in maintaining contact with the cap. Again, I could feel the unit flexing when I used this, almost like you could bend it easily. More on that later.

Felo versus bottle

Even though the Gedore was the smallest, it felt stronger than all the others except for the Wiha. It was also the only bottle opener that didn’t feel like a screwdriver. Even with a small handle it did not feel awkward.

Gedore versus bottle

Taking a look at each of the caps it was obvious that the most deformation occurred with the Gedore. The least amount of deformation occurred with the Wera and the Felo.

Opener Cap Deformations

I did not notice this at first but the Felo definitely bent in just those four bottles. The flexing I felt was then definitely the metal bending. I was able to bend it back, but it is just a matter of time before metal fatigue causes this to break. For sake of fairness I tried to manually bend each of the other openers and the only one I could get to bend at all is the Witte, but not at much as the Felo.

Conclusion

As for my opinion on which opener is the best, I take into consideration, the size, weight, cost, aesthetics, and performance of the unit. Of course you may have a different opinion based on other factors. I am going to give the title to the Gedore because of its compactness and design. While the metal doesn’t seem very thick, it feel to be a very high grade steel casting that would be very hard to bend. 2 nd and 3 rd were very close but I gave the runner up to Wiha because it felt indestructible compared to the other units. 3 rd is the Wera, which has the best aesthetics of the bunch. The Wera unit would probably make the best gift because their handles are very recognizable. 4 th place was the Witte. I may have ranked this higher if it didn’t bend when I tested the strength of each unit. Last place was the Felo because it bent even after just four bottles. The Felo being the most expensive of the lot should have performed better than it did. They either need to taper the metal or use a better quality alloy.
