Park Tool AWS-10 Fold-Up Hex Wrench Set Review

This is a super useful tool from Park Tool.  I have a lot of allen wrench tools, but this is always the first one I grab.  It comes with a great selection of sizes that will always meet your needs for a bike.  Plus, it is blue making it easy to spot in the toolbox.  My old steel one was fine, but my metric and standard ones look almost exactly the same.  Now it’s quick and easy to grab the right tool the first time.

  1. “Chamfered” means the ends are tapered slightly so the wrench will slip into place more easily. If you look closely you can see an angled cut at the end of each wrench. If chamfering is not done properly and extends too far up the shaft (or isn’t sharply demarcated), they will tend to slip and wreck the screw heads.
