Draper or Stanley are reasonable priced approx £15, if you want to stretch to £25 then you can pick up Knipex or CK. there are many different brands shapes and sizes on the market, I have 5 or 6 sets of pointed nose pliers and none are the same.

If you plan to use on electrical then you really want to get VDE rated pliers.

VDE for sure - c.k. for around the £25 or £20 for a set of wiha.

If your going to use them infrequently a pair of drapers will do the job for around £12

Can't remember where I got my VDE long nosed from, might well have been part of a kit of VDE tools.
