* Hammers that do more than just hammer
* Because not all multitools are improved by being tiny
* These multifunction hammers include screwdrivers, pliers, wire cutters and more
The Hammer. Perhaps no tool is more legendary, yet so often overlooked. Sure, the hammer seems truly awesome when it’s in the form of Thor’s mystical artifact, or when it comes to us in a song– Hammer Time, for instance, or even the, er, classic Leonard Nimoy rendition of “If I had a Hammer,” but in real life, in our everyday tool kits, the humble hammer has, perhaps, an under-served reputation for being archaic and clumsy, kind of like Neanderthals.
This simple weight on the end of a log, surely its time has passed, now that we live in an age of multitools the size of credit cards? Well here are four hammers that have a few tricks up their sleeves.
1. Hammer Axe MultiTool
This multitool is a hammer that makes good use of its size, packing a bewildering array of obscure, survival relevant functions into one, hammer-like form factor.
2. Bottle Opener Hammer
This is the hammer for maintaining a good work-life balance. Reward yourself for all that hammering with the convenience of its built-in bottle opener.
3. 16-in-1 Ergonomic MultiTool Hammer
This one has a nicely finished wood handle and along with its traditional hammer function, it provides a mini camping axe, hex key, wire cutter and, thankfully, a fish fork.
4. Combination Hammer, Axe and Saw
A durable multitool suitable for camping and outdoor adventuring as well as of use around the house, this one comes with a Philips head screwdriver, saw, bottle opener and wire cutters as well.
