Issued to soldiers fighting in the Pacific Theater during WWII, the Woodman's Pal is still the same dependable tool it was seven decades ago. This combination axe and machete replaces several tools at once, with an ideal balance that lets the 1/8" thick high-carbon blade feel natural as you swing and strike. It measures 17 inches long overall, with a leather handle, hand guard, an 8-inch concave edge, and a 2-inch hook, and is also available in a longer, thinner Brush Cutter model for clearing vines, brush, and other thick growth. Made in the USA.
Plenty of multi-tools offer screwdriver bits. Few, if any, are quite as small and convenient as the Key-Bit EDC Tool. Made in Minneapolis from your choice of aluminum or patina-developing copper, the pill-shaped tool hides a standard screw bit inside, using a pair of powerful magnets to stay securely closed until you need it. Knurling on both sides makes it easy to grip, and while it ships with a #2 Phillips hex screw bit, it can accomodate nearly any 1/4" x 1" hex bit you find most useful.
Drills are built to make round holes. Light switches, power outlets, and other utility plates are square or rectangular. The Quadsaw makes the two compatible. It attaches to your drill like any other bit, but uses four specially-designed blades to slice through drywall in as little as ten seconds, cutting single or double outlets with ease. It has a built-in height guide and spirit level to keep your cuts tidy and consistent, and is made from durable materials that will keep it working job after job.
Tape measures have been around for a very long time. The Instrumments 01 Dimensioning Device may make them obsolete very quickly. This pen-like tool is made from aluminum and steel and lets you measure the dimensions of nearly anything simply by rolling the tip over the surface. It hooks to your phone wirelessly, lets you measure in nearly any unit you like, and also hides a pen inside, giving you no excuse not to carry it with you.
