Japanese screwdrivers are typically made from the highest quality materials, such as stainless steel and titanium, with high-quality wooden, elastomer or resin grips. This ensures that they are durable, corrosion-resistant, and can withstand heavy use under any circumstances.
There are several types of Japanese screwdrivers available, including JIS (Japanese Industrial Standard) screwdrivers, which have a unique tip that fits perfectly into JIS screws, to avoid stripping and damage. Japanese screwdriver manufacturers also make slotted screwdrivers, Phillips head screwdrivers, Torx screwdrivers, hex drivers and more.
Recently, demolition screwdrivers have become more and more common in Japan. These are screwdrivers with a shaft that runs all the way through the handle, to a metal striking plate on the heel of the grip, so they can be struck safely with a hammer.
