    Hi guys,

    Has anyone had much experience of KTC tools. They are regarded as the best automotive tools from Japan.

    Here is a link:

    Professional tools from Japan - KTC Kyoto Tool

    In the future I may look to upgrade from my halfords set to something they may have

    Yup I have a few nose end pliers as well as some trim tools. Good stuff but hard to get in the UK s dominated by eurocrap.

    Thanks Ichiban. With rakuten (Japanese Amazon equivalent) building a bigger presence in Europe I think it should be easier to get some more of these goods.

    How would you compare this to snap on? It looks like a lot of the honda factory tools are made by KTC. Btw I have ordered the fuel filter tool and still waiting for it to be delivered. Not in a rush though..it must be coming from japan

    Mate the prices of KTC is far more dearer than span-on. Having said that KTC are great but price make it unattractive. Yup majority of Honda factory tools in Japan and Asia are KTC and we do get a few of them via Honda.I tool once wanted KTC but now use beta tools.

    Yes beta looks good. I just bought the beta car trolley from Amazon. I remembered you recommended it. Also saw your review:Thumbup:

    How is it. Is it well made?

    Tools look quite good, a bit on the pricey side
