There are two tongue and groove pliers, some long nose pliers, side cutter pliers and slip joint pliers. Essentially, every thing you need for most jobs.
This particular set comes with it's own toolroll. The pliers are well-constructed and tough. If you do manage to break them, don't worry. All Channellock tools come with a lifetime warranty, so if anything happens, you can get some new tools free of charge.
At $79 bucks, they're a little pricey, but you'd have them forever. If I needed a set of pliers, these are the ones I'd buy. Click on the button below to see some close up views on Amazon.
