Wera Screwdrivers are Badass!

A buddy of mine, who at the time was a product manager for tools at his company, sent me this set to play with and I couldn't be more impressed.  This tips have been laser etched and grab the drive recess in the screw head like a magnet. 

This set has a couple flat blades (slotted) a couple Philips (though an educated eye will note that the close-up is of a Pozi drive) and a couple square drivers.  It's really a great set, but what I thought was most weird was the presence of a red handled driver. 

I snapped a photo of the drivers in the package and sent the pic to my friend in an email with the simple question: "What's with the Red handle?" 

Moments later he replied "It's a #2 Square drive".

Hummm, does he think I'm a moron?  Let's try this again, but more directly this time: "Right, I get that, but why is it RED?"

He replied "Because it's BADASS!"

After having this set in my shop for the past few years I have to agree!    Here's the "Badass" Wera set on Amazon: https://amzn.to/3z1dVer  That said, as much as I like this set my favorite Wera tool is this one: https://amzn.to/3iXcKHq but hat's for another post.
