The right tool for the job is made of the right material for the job.
For our high-end tools, we use low-expansion brass with engraved scales for consistency of measurements as well as longevity of the device.
Brass is a metallic alloy that is made of copper and zinc. The proportions of zinc and copper can vary to create different types of brass alloys with varying mechanical and electrical properties. It is a substitutional alloy: atoms of the two constituents may replace each other within the same crystal structure. (Wikipedia)
A combination of high workability (historically with hand tools) and durability is desired. Brass is often used in situations in which it is important that sparks are not struck, such as in fittings and tools used near flammable or explosive materials or where non-magnetic tools are required.
