It's important to stay prepared for anything that comes your way. Whether you're out in the field, on a job site or camping, a multipurpose tool combines a variety of essential features into one tool. It's also a good idea to keep knives on you at all times for cutting through rope and other materials while you're on the go. Stock up on a variety of essential hand tools and other equipment to stay on top of tasks.
The most important thing when it comes to knives is the blade length and sharpness. Look for a knife with a retractable design in various positions, so you can expose different blade lengths to suit different cutting tasks, ranging from shallow cuts to deep cuts. Built-in blade storage lets you keep several replacement blades on hand for quick changes while you're away from your tool shed. Knives with a brightly colored handle offer high visibility in low-light environments, while knives with cushioned grips keep hands comfortable during use.
A multipurpose tool combines everything you need into one handle. Some common integrated tools are spring-loaded pliers, wire cutters, strap cutters, utility knives, wrenches, screwdrivers, carbon scrapers and files. A built-in file can be used to keep instruments sharp. Look for a multipurpose tool with removable tool heads, making repairs and re-sharpening fast and easy.. A multipurpose tool with a pocket clip allows easy transport, while handles with visual imprints of the folded tools underneath allow you to quickly identify where each tool is located.
