    If this isn't the right place, please delete mods.

    I'm looking to buy a simple 3 or 4 piece JIS screwdriver set. Looking on Amazon the reviews are a bit alarming about quality and most importantly: If they are actually JIS or not.

    So I'm hoping someone on TW has a set that they really recommend.

    Thanks in advance.

    Vessel Tools. www.vesseltools.com. Straight from the manufacturer- I’ve used them for years and they are well made and real JIS drivers. Highly recommend.

    Funny I bought my first ones from McMaster-Carr they were Vessel

    Thought I would try Amazon turns out it was the same brand shipped from Japan.

    This was a few years back Amazon Vendor may have changed.

    I have Vessel Megadora set. Life changing when working on Japanese stuff. The difference is amazing.

    I just bought them individually here: https://www.vesseltools.com/handtools/screwdrivers/megadora/900-series-detail#dimension-chart

    All the ones on Amazon now have the JawsFit (teeth) on the heads of the tools. I've read a lot of reviews that absolutely do not like them. So I found the standard pieces on that website.

    This is a set that mostly has thin shanks, if you don't care about that: https://www.vesseltools.com/handtools/screwdrivers/megadora/900-910-kit-7-detail
