I think I agree , a tad too expensive ; and they look too good to get dirty ! .....however I'm a bit of a sucker when it comes too well made tools......

A great marketing video that will perhaps appeal to the "wanabee" or "poser" mechanics. If, "for example" 13mm or 1/2" bolt head or nut is not pristine, then no magic spanner/wrench is going to make it better. Reminds me of the American fashion house "Neiman Marcus" sometimes referred to as "Needless Markup". Maybe the world has moved on, seized and rust-reduced bolts were common back in the day. Except for the illustrious, who like many here, deal with rusted crap on a daily basis, motor mechanics/technicians today are faced with a whole range of different problems such as "which way is UP on the diagnostic Din socket"... and "Is the VIN# ABCD, with transmission XYZ99 version 4, 100% compatible with my software 2019-V1.1234, which was released prior to COVID-19 and limited to VIN#'s ABCD to EFGH, unless the transmission is dated as 00/00/2019 to 01/01/2019.....

As for "Joker" wrenches............... it is either old age or the sales pitch that has caused a warm damp feeling......
