In addition to the eight hex wrenches, Silca includes a magnetic adapter that turns the 6mm key into a 1/4in socket drive, allowing it to be used with any 1/4in driver bit. Silca includes six Torx bits (T8, T10, T15, T20, T25, and T30) two philips heads, and two flat heads with the kit.

The tools are housed in a CNC-machined box constructed from beech wood with a Silca stainless steel shield emblazoned on the lid.

This HX One will retail for US$125 (UK and Australian pricing has yet to be released). Silca expects to begin shipping HX-One tool kits in limited quantities in early September.
