Anybody who knows hand tools knows China produces crap.
American made hand tools are made to last.
I can't tell you how many times I've been over at a neighbors, friends or family members house lending a hand doing some basic repairs and I've asked
for a socket wrench or some other such tool only to have the socket crack and I bust a knuckle due to the fact that it cracked or stripped.
You get what you pay for. Lifetime warranties don't really mean squat if it's crap. They'll just replace it with more inexpensive cheaply made crap VS
something that is solidly made and fairly pricey but you'll know it will not only have a lifetime warranty but a life expectancy of a few decades
before it needs replacing.
My favorite are SK tools others may vary.
