Craftsman has officially announced their new V-Series of professional mechanics tools.
The new Craftsman V-Series ratchets, wrenches, sockets, screwdrivers, and other such tools are said to be designed to professional specifications and are also backed by their Full Lifetime Warranty.
The new tools are said to deliver high-end performance, and are made to handle the demands of professional level users.
We designed this premium line of tools for those who don’t shy away from a frame-off restoration or face demanding conditions at a work site.
Press materials specifically describe the new Craftsman V-Series offerings as premium tools for automotive and industrial use, and they will likely also appeal to more demanding enthusiasts and DIY users as well.
There are bold claims tied to the new sub-brand:
CRAFTSMAN V-Series professional grade tools ensure you’ll Never Compromise™ when working in the most demanding applications.
Here are all the V-Series tools included in the initial launch:
- Hex keys and T-Handles

We’ve already seen examples of Craftsman’s new V-Series hand tools, and I’ve been very optimistic.
Craftsman V-Series tools will be available at select Craftsman retailers (such as Lowe’s at least online) Fall 2021.
