These noses offer several quality features including tool steel anvils and chrome molly unitized jaws hardened to Rockwell C60. The anvil has a black oxidized finish. Gage Bilt for several decades was the OEM manufacturer for Huck® and the current owner use to work on the production line building noses. To say they know how to make quality noses is an understatement, as I have never seen any I have sold fail. These noses are suitable for busy repair shops and production environments.
