Sometimes a Jack-of-all-trades is needed when you’re facing multiple tasks blocking your path.

Luckily for you, the multi-tool is there to help. With most units no larger than a conventional fixed or folding knife, a multi-tool not only offers a sharp blade, but a plethora of other cutting tools, measuring devices, pliers, tweezers, eating utensils, screwdrivers and much more.

The multi-tool saves both valuable pack space and also offers a wide range of specialty functions. Big things come in these compact and useful packages.
