Craftsman sells a black nickel chrome tool set - only problem is it's only sold in Canada. Does anyone know why and can you recommend another brand but in the same black?

I believe Stanley makes it for craftsman if i'm not mistaken. You're better off getting regular chrome set, if they stop making them it will be hard to warranty.

From Wiki:


Quote
General hand tools have been made by a variety of manufacturers over the years including New Britain,[7] Moore Drop Forge,[8] Stanley,[9] Easco Hand Tools,[10] and most recently the Danaher Corporation[11] (wrenches, ratchets, and sockets) and Western Forge[12] (screwdrivers, pliers, and adjustable wrenches). Many newer tool designs are now imported, mostly from China. Craftsman-branded garage door openers are manufactured by The Chamberlain Group.[13]



CHINA!? Who would have ever figured?
