Hi all,

I want to upgrade my torx bits from the cheaper ones i got at Lowes. Any recommendation on a high-quality set? Also, is the Benchmade blue box the one to get? Thanks.

I have a few torx sets, Wiha included, and I've found that I need to use the torxplus bits occasionally.
The Wiha torxplus set is $35 and has saved quite a few headaches.

If you want some high quality drivers to go with those high quality Wiha bits... I highly recommend the iFixit Precision 4mm and iFixit Mahi 1.4" drivers.

They rock.

As many others have said, Wiha is the way to go. I have a set of their wing handles, but I much prefer the drivers. Excellent quality.

I buy from a major supplier so I can get multiples of the sizes I need in my shop for miscellaneous chores including tweakin with knives. They fulfilled orders with zephyr and I never went back. Zephyr is USA made and are excellent in quality. I used to vote Wiha until I found a domestic brand I liked and found affordable

I have not used Zephyr, but they have a stellar reputation.

I have the wiha stubby one that puts the bits all up inside the handle. It’s been going strong for several years.

Wiha makes some good bits and they are pretty well priced. If you want the best PB Swiss is up at the top. They have a huge selection of bits and screwdrivers. If you’re not familiar check them out.

Have the same and love it, although mine's the Boker marked version, which oddly I was able to find cheaper than the wiha version. But still has wiha bits. Replaced one of the torx bits with a 5/64 hex so I can use it on my CRK.

As other have stated the Wiha bits are a great euro-brand. Felo is what I'm currently using for knife maintenance.

Before I tried Wiha, I bought a Felo T6 to replace one that broke in a generic set I have. It worked ok, but the Wiha T6 bit definitely fits better.
