If you have a classic car and are looking for the "right look" spanners for your tool kit then you are in the right place.
King Dick have gone to great lengths to recreate the black finish that was used prior to chrome being the norm. The challenge was the original black finish contained cyanide ... which meant a lot of formulation changes to get a durable black finish that met modern safety checks.
The finish they've achieved is durable, but I would always choice their chrome finish for tools that are being regularly used. These are perfect for occasional use and to look right in the tool kit of show cars.
