Stanley 58-930 Cushion Grip Nail Set

This is a nail set - nothing special there. What's special about this one isn't the fact that it's a Stanley hand tool so much as it's more user friendly than similar ones.

They're long enough to make short working of setting nails in flush, yet not so long they feel out of balance or send too much vibration up the shaft and into your hand/wrist. A good quality tool, precision milled steel heads, bevelled edge on the tip, all round a great little set and the price? - they're almost being given away.
