These import noses offer several quality features including tool steel anvils and stainless steel alloy-jaws (superior to chromoly) hardened to Rockwell C60. The anvil has an enameled black finish. The unitized jaw design allows for easy nose assembly and is more comparable to USA noses. The maker is a family owned business with decades of manufacturing experience. The nose design was recently updated and all lockbolt noses now feature stainless-steel alloy unitized jaws which should enhance reliability.
