The K&N filters with the nut on the bottom are not new, they've been on the market for several years.
I've always used a "oil filter wrench", they come in different sizes for different size filters, even WM sells them, just find the filter you need and then match it up to the correct size wrench. Never had "special pliers" that worked worth a $%^&. LOL
