Wiha Inomic Insulated Combo Pliers

wiha_ergonomic.jpgWhen we first saw these, we thought, "aww, that's cute, something for the weak-handed, light-duty DIY crowd." But it turns out that these things are like $40 and they're insulated to 1000 volts. So, yeah, maybe not the right tool for your mom.

Designed to take some of the stress off your wrist, the funky shape of these pliers definitely cause a double take. We scanned the Amazon reviews and there's a guy who says that there's too much flex in the handle (causing the pliers to be unable to cut 12/2 wire). If the handles are plastic, and it looks like they are, that seems likely.
