There many older wrenches that are beautifully made. I also have similar 
half moon and "s" shaped wrenches. I also have quite a few custom bent 
Craftsman wrenches for those special places where nothing else will do. 
I have always had trouble putting the torch to high quality wrenches but 
the Craftsman wrenches are cheap and boy can you bend them into a noodle 
if you need to.

PS: I like Alfas too. Wonderful engines and beautifully balanced chassis 
but they sure like to rust.
