The basic material used to manufacture PB Swiss Tools tools is a special alloy based on spring steel. This special type of steel is extremely hard (58-60 HRC) and boasts unique toughness and spring characteristics. It has been produced from a special recipe that was developed especially for us over many decades in collaboration with numerous steelworks.
Cellulose acetate butyrate (CAB) is a natural material derived from wood which we use for crafting the PB Swiss Tools Classic and multicraft handles. Since CAB can develop an unpleasant odor in airtight boxes and drawers, we add a subtle vanilla fragrance to the material to neutralize it.
The SwissGrip, VDE screwdriver and electronics screwdriver handle lines are manufactured from a combination of two components. In each case, the core consists of a particularly tough, impact-resistant polypropylene while the outer surface is made of a soft, kind-to-the-skin elastomer.
