OK tool, although in hindsight I would have chosen a chromed tool instead. I worry about rusting on this uncoated tool. The description on line could have been more detailed. The picture on line seems to show a chrome tool. It is not, but is machined steel apparently uncoated. I have many great Proto tools, which Stanley has apparently taken over. Too bad - Proto was great.
