Park Tool Needle Nose Pliers - NP-6 $25.95
You don't need to be in the mafia to use needle nose pliers.
Needle nose pliers are undoubtedly one of the most used tools in a bike shop—they need to be tough, well-made, and functional. The Park Tool Needle Nose Pliers are constructed using heat-treated chromoly steel for lifetime of use, and with a six-inch business-end they're the perfect size for bike-related jobs. Dual density grips ensure a solid hold—no slipping here, while the invisible spring operates smoothly for nimbleness in tight areas. Finished off with a cutting blade and five different bike-specific crimping/grasping areas, so you won't accidentally cut through those fancy colored ferrules ever again.
What community has to say
They dont lock shut
Great tool for sure, but they are always in the open position when they are not used. There is not lock on it to keep it closed which results in it taking up a lot of room in the toolbox/ work bench
5 stars might be a bit much since in the end, this is just a pair of pliers like most you could get at the hardwear store, but Park Tool quality is unreal. This is extremely solid, will take abuse, but has a soft grippy grip that wont leave your hands all sorts of callused. I like it.
