With over 32 years experience, King Tony knows that it isn’t just toughness that makes his tools such a high quality. All of Tony’s tools are designed with you in mind, including easy metric and imperial colour coding systems, comfortable hand grips and easy accessibility.

Each tools needs to pass up to 19 inspection tests before it gets Tony's "tough" tick of approval.
