|English term or phrase: flat blade screwdriver|
Usually, the flat blade part is not translated ('Schraubendreher(/zieher)) as that is the default, if you will. However, if you want to emphasize the flat blade part, use 'Schlitzschraubendreher', as opposed to 'Kreuzschlitzschraubendreher' which is a Phillips-head screwdriver. As for '-zieher' or '-dreher', '-dreher' seems to be the technically correct term (http://www.heimwerkerlexikon.de/lexikon/schraubendreher.htm)... Check Eurodicatom under screwdriver.
