Koken as The Lifetime Solution to the Trade


Ratchet - Knurled Handle
When Koken first came to New Zealand in 1957, the High Quality Sockets; Accessories were an instant hit with the trade and their apprentices alike.

Most of those apprentices that I speak to, who bought those earliest socket sets, still swear by the tools today and won’t use any other brand… some still have the original sets that they bought all those years ago

Ratchets are the heart of Any socket set and all tool boxes need to have a quality ratchet. The Koken ratchet is special for a number of reasons…
The Knurled Handle is exclusive to Koken – The specially designed 6 point knurling is very popular on extentions and is very “grippy”.
