Like earlier models from Channellock, the Code Blue Linesman Pliers (369CRFTCB) are made in the U.S. from drop-forged high carbon steel. But they differ in one significant way — they lack the classic dipped blue handles. Instead, they have ergonomic rubber over mold grips. These 10-inch pliers are coated to prevent rust and feature built-in 12 AWG wire strippers, a crimping/crushing area, and cross-hatched teeth for gripping fish tape. ¦ Price: $46. 800-724-3018. channellock.com.
