For some things they are good like disassembling a manual transmission. But the first manual trans I ever took apart I was handed a couple Saltus wrenches to do the job so that's what I learned on. But I just like using them even though my goto's are combination wrenches.

I seem to recall that the Grayvik name is used for factory seconds or extras. Is this correct?

could be. usually stuff like that has cosmetic issues rather than functional issues. either way the prices are pretty decent.
Correct .

That Craftsman is indeed a rare devil!
I recall seeing these at Sears hardware and wondering why they were so expensive ! If I only knew then what I know now.  SK did not make a tuff 1 thumb wheel ratchet  under the SK banner,but Facom did and still does,but like the Craftsman version,they are pricey!
 I would not spring the $100 for the Craftsman, but did spring $40 for the Facom version.

Here's a gold plated Bonney ratchet on Ebay. It's a Chrysler award.  Buy it now for $ 35.00 = $ 10.80 shipping.

What I like about the Saltus wrenches is they have a flex head. But then my preference in ratchets is non lockable flex heads.

I hear you on the ratchets. I guess I will only use the Saltus wrench on a "buried" fastener that a box wrench won't reach but a height restriction prevents use of a ratchet plus socket. So far I haven't run across that on A/C or my car stuff.

The predecessor to the Muscle Wrench.  Very cool item.
     I would have needed that! 

   I had a few saltus and moved them on.  Not earthshaking great.

Would a clevis be considered a better way?

We all use mostly what we're used to I guess. There's a lot of ways to get to the same end and habit usually dictates which way that is.

I'm in a position now that time is usually not much of a factor so I can be more adventurous in trying new things but the way my mentor taught me and the tools he used are the way I've always done it.

Hard on the paint though. Most places I have worked in won’t let you hook directly into the pad eyes unless you pull in the throat of the hook
