Everyone should have a multi tool — whether you’re a pro handyman and adventurer, or someone who hates changing light bulbs and prefers a treadmill to the trail. Multi tools are a household necessity that are sure to get used more than once, and a good one will last years. To help find the right one, we’ve rounded up a variety of the most well-made, reliable multi tools you can buy right now.
1. Sheffield 14-in-1 Hammer Tool
Hammer multi tools aren’t as common as typical plier multi tools, but they’re equally handy. We recommend this one because it’s very well-built, but also well-priced under $10.
2. Gelindo Pocket Multi Tool
