Hi , do you guys have experience with these Japanese tools? They saying Vessel are good brand, but probably these are some old stocks? But are they about that good, price seems ok,I think

I have the TD-56. It is a nice set. The rubber comfort grip is removable for tight situations.

They are also labeled as JIS (Japanese Industrial Standard) and/or JCIS (Japanese Camera Industrial Standards)

I am sure the smallest of the slot screw drivers can bend, but you shouldn't put that much torque on them anyway.

Always check the slot drivers for flatness prior to usage.

Thanks for your answer. In fact, I was looking after some nice JIS Vessel kit, but they aren't very cheap option . Finally I found these interesting ones, by the look I assumed they are some vintage old stocks, but meantime the quality is right, I don't botter. Ain't easy finding quality JIS screwdrivers for low amount of money. Finally , I've ordered a couple of them ,from another buyer, about 13€ shipping included.

Vessel is a top tier Japanese tool maker. They are my favorite screwdrivers. However, it's not impossible to break them, and at $10-15 a pop I would not be surprised if there were some fakes, so choose your source wisely.

Well, there aren't many better option for micro screwdrivers ,besides de other 100% Chinese ones, so at least these are coming from Japanese sellers (hopefully) . I know it's a gamble , but I was curious if anyone else had experience with these tools exactly. Of course I've looked for other options wiha etc, but aren't cheap at all. Probably I would never have to use the 0,7 mm screwdriver I imagine it very little,but who knows , my Xiaomi wiha doesn't include so small size ones.

Of course there are better options than these. You only really need two of them 00, and 0, the rest of the set will be too small, and personally I dislike these precision screwdrivers - it is very hard to apply torque with them. The price is pretty good though, ordering a set like that from a dealer would set me be back $30+.
