Handles of screwdrivers

In the U.S., plastic screwdriver handles follow on the shape of wooden handles.

In the U.K. that's true too, only their wooden handles were round, rather than square.

That's interesting - I hadn't realised that the handles were different in the 2 countries. In Australia we tend to follow the American model (which is also interesting since I would have thought our first screwdrivers here came from the UK....)

They're not different! Most plastic screwdriver handles in the uk are those square ridged one as in the top image :)

That just means you have some like ours. We don't have round handles like some of yours, except maybe on older awls.
