Bostitich Hand Tools



Bostitich, makers of pneumatics and only pneumatics have recently developed a new line of hand tools...or have they? Maybe 'developed' is the wrong word.

When we went and checked out their website to get more information on this, we were a bit surprised at exactly how many hand tools they're releasing. Since there's no way they engineered this entire line for a single roll-out (17 new hammers, 4 new utility knives, 7 new pry bars, etc.), we headed over to their parent company's website. Sure enough, the Stanley FatMax line is virtually identical to the new Bostitich line. It seems like there are some aesthetic differences here and there, but they're minor at best. It's safe to say that the "Bostitich Hand Tools: Development and Testing" office is little more than a place to keep the foosball table.

But this isn't to say that these are lame tools. It's the opposite really. The FatMax line is great and their 25' tape is our standard. But you've got to admit that this is sort of funny.

Browse the selection of tools here. Play "find the comprable Stanley hand tool" here.
