Unless it’s a specialty tool, I only buy Husky tools from Home Depot.

Really? fancy hex keys? I'd only pay extra for an adjustable handle for tight clearance , T handles, tq wrench, etc. Otherwise, why would you pay extra for standard hex sizes? I keep this in my bike tool bag cheap beam tq wrench.

Um. Well, better materials and tighter tolerances. Can't think of any other reason to use fancy hex key's.
