The folks at Irwin Industrial Tool have continually provided us with innovative tool and tool accessory designs which have solidified them as a leader in their industry. Starting with the first auger bit in 1885, the Irwin Company manufactured quality products at a great price. They have multiple lines across the hand tool field, such as Vise-Grip Pliers, Marathon Saw Blades and laser guides, Hanson drill bits and taps, Quick Grip clamps and vises, and Lenox brand reciprocating saw blades. By continuing their legacy of innovation and quality, they are known throughout the hand tool industry. In 2002, Newell-Rubbermaid bought the company and to this day, Irwin is still holding strong to the principles that have gotten them to the height of popularity. If you are looking for a tool with a proven reputation for quality and durability, choose Irwin.
