If your toolbox already contains the essentials, what’s the point of a multitool that combines their different standalone functions? In a word: convenience. The next time you need to make a small tweak around the house, then—rather than traipse out to the garage to gather each one of the tools you may need—you can grab the Workman’s Multitool and go to work immediately. Cleverly designed and surprisingly compact, the Workman’s Multitool packs no small amount of utility into its engraved wooden handle. Besides a hammer with integrated pliers, there's also a mini saw blade, a straight-edge knife, two types of screwdrivers, and—believe it or not—a handful of other tools, all intended to help you complete the job in the time it would otherwise take you just to get started. Available at Amazon; $29.99.
