Ifixit pentalobe screws look the same as the original?

I stripped the pentalobe screws on my 5S. I got them out but do the ifixit ones look exactly the same? I know it's a stupid question but I'd like to know before purchasing new ones.

They probably are out of old iPhones that have been liberated. These screws were such a PITA that iFixit produced this Liberation Kit so you don't have to fool with then anymore: iPhone 5s Liberation Kit

Note the three different colors to match your phone.
