Parts Of A Basic Multi-Tool
Multi-tools have come a long way since the inception of the Swiss Army knife, and modern designers have added new tools into the mix. Basic tools, however, remain at the core of multi-tools. So, what are these basic tools?
Knife – the blade of multi-tools can come smooth or serrated. Some multi-tools, like this DeWalt multi-tool, has a combination of the plain-edged and serrated blade. You can cut a lot of things with multi-tool knives, including food, rope, fabric, paper, wood, and more.
Pliers – this includes regular and needle-nose pliers. Regular and hard-wire cutters are also included.
Screwdrivers – a lot of multi-tools have small, medium, and large screwdrivers. Phillips screwdrivers are also mandatory.
Saw – many multi-tools are equipped with saws. The serrated blade is ideal for cutting thin tree branches, plywood, plastic pipes, and more.
Awl – this is a pointed tool used to punch holes into plastic, wood, or leather.
Can and Bottle Openers – the lifesaver for many mountaineers, hikers, campers, recreational fishers, and even ordinary homeowners. What better way to cap an adventure or the end of a project than opening a bottle of beer with your handy multi-tool’s bottle opener?
Some of the tools you’ll find in other models include:
- Fish scaler
- Nail/wood/metal file
