Have you ever wondered how much time do you spend on finding the right tools and trying to solve the problem with your own hands? Sure, appealing to a handyman is always a better solution, but most of the times these men are hard to find and quite expensive to hire. Not to mention they shouldn’t be troubled every time you need to change your light bulb in the living room or stumble across a leaking pipe in the bathroom. Nevertheless, most of us rush to the nearest hardware store and wander through shelves of countless hammers, piles, files, screwdrivers, axes, utilitarian knives and needles not knowing what we are looking for. However, before deciding to throw several hundreds of dollars on items you will probably not use more than once in your life time, think about the other possibilities. For instance, a multi tool could be much cheaper and do the job just fine, while successfully replacing other useful items as well.
I bought my first multi tool about a decade ago and, ever since then I have been trying different brands and products and tested plenty of other multi tools up to their resistance point. Although there are numerous brands on the market that pretty much sell the same thing, I suggest you go with a classic and, by that, I mean go with a well reputed brand. I chose my Leatherman 830246 Multi Tool and I couldn’t be more proud. Here are a few reasons why:
