I don't need tools to get my oil filter off, although I might in the future if the arthritis in my right hand gets worse.
For a few years the Purolator Pure One premium filter had a rough-textured paint on it, great for getting a grip. They were an ugly mustard color but some leftover spray paint took care of that in a few minutes. Unfortunately, the textured paint is gone, and they are now one of the brands with a convex face plate that is unusable on these bikes.
