Guess who started making hand tools? The DeWalt 5-In-1 Hacksaw ($25) is part of the legendary brand's new line of hand tools, bringing the same toughness as their battery-powered brethren. This particular specimen features a reversible blade that offers up to 330 pounds of 90 degree slicing on one side and 45 degree flush cuts on the other, a removable nose piece that lets it function as a low-profile hacksaw, a blade storage compartment that holds a reciprocating saw blade, and the ability to serve as a pistol-grip jab saw for cutting drywall.
What better name for a burly ice scraper than that of a Nordic god-turned-comic hero? The Thor Ice Scraper ($20) drops the hammer on ice and snow with a double-blade design so you can scrape with forward and backward motions, a front handle for added force, a telescoping arm so you can reach all the way across your vehicle with ease, and a front plow for blasting away snow.
