Introducing The AKD Heritage Collection
- a range of authentically classic tools, made using today’s materials and manufacturing processes. The best of both worlds, with modern performance and an authentic period look, and all from the original manufacturer!
Abingdon King Dick, manufacturers of high quality professional-user hand tools since 1856, provided tools as original equipment to the majority of the now classic British vehicle manufacturers, and have recreated a range of traditionally styled tools which utilise ultra-modern reliability and performance capabilities.
Still manufactured in Birmingham UK, the Heritage Collection is created from state of the art products inspired by the original tools, and aesthetically sympathetic to the originals to provide a traditional, visually authentic finish.
The range includes old style double open ended spanners, in AF, BSW and Metric sizes, and featuring a durable, retro black finish. Traditional double ended box spanners also feature, again period correct with a black finish, further supported by customary wooden handled screwdrivers which now incorporate the latest specification of high-performance blades inside conventionally styled and treated wooden handles to give the ultimate classic look but with bang up-to-date performance.
Together with many other classically styled and desirable tools, the Heritage Collection offers a choice of tool sets and selections to suit the vast majority of requirements. With a classically styled, versatile and hard wearing tool roll, a range of standard sets are immediately available, together with the option to create your own specific requirements for your ideal tool set for travel or garage use.
All materials are critically sourced and manufactured to exacting standards and controls, and made to achieve high performance whilst retaining a durable, traditional appearance
Some products are selectively chosen by us at Abingdon King Dick, and are not of our manufacture, all such items are of assured and tested high quality and warranted by us accordingly.
The combination of these components provides optimum performance tools complete with time-honoured styling.
