Bacho against CK Tools VDE drivers.

Well, I got a few moments to take some photos to show the difference between the CK Tools (made in Germany) and the Bahco (made in Spain) VDE drivers that are tested to European and I believe international standards for up to 1000V. The largest difference is mostly the handle and how it fits in your hand. The CK Triton have ridges that are suppose to make it fit your hands better. However, I have pretty large hands and find it would fit a smaller hand better. I reach for the CK Dextro range instead mostly as they are smooth and fit all hand sizes. You can see the Dextro ones in my photos.

 

Both the Bacho and CK feel well made. Very strong and stand up to good use. You can push down hard and both grip and strength is there. Both feature the black/carbon colored steel. The plastic on the Bahco feels harder and more slippy but not slippy that you would lose grip. So a different plastic is perhaps used.

I find the Bahco tips to be smaller than the CK. More narrow. The flat heads have more curve as it leads into the tip. Both work as expected.

 

Work wise, I honestly do not feel or notice any difference at all but that could come down to how you use your tools and your work environment. Mine are mostly used in computers/servers and installation of networks and electronic work where a lot of force is not really required.

 

Both driver sets retail at around the same cost. I paid £18.50 for the Bahco and £19 for the CK.

 

Here are some photos.

These drivers are insulated for high voltage use. I don't know if they are also anti-esd rated as well. Don't get me wrong, I use plain old screwdrivers to work on computers and network gear, but I would think that an ESD rated set would be more useful if you're looking for specialty tools for that kind of work.

No these are not anti-static. When working on the internals I use anti-static tools and all within an esd work bench etc. I should have clarified that. I certainly in the past killed a few GPU's and HDD's not following correct protocols.
