To save space and lighten the load, tools that have more than one function can be the answer to your gear list.

I read about this one through the Hill People Gear Website's pointer from this page:
https://hillpeoplegear.com/Education/Equipage/20

This handle is handy to have in any toolbox. What makes it so useful is that it accepts standard reciprocating saw blades, so you can use them manually to make cuts in confined spaces. It can also be used as a screwdriver with the included 4" long 1/4" hex extension.

The handle comes in a nylon belt holster with two 6" blades (10 tpi for cutting wood, and 24 tpi for metal) and seven S2 driver bits (1/4" and 3/16" slot, #1 and #2 Phillips, #1 and #2 square drive, and #2 POSIDRIV®) plus a 1/4" socket adapter.

Made from durable ABS, the handle is hinged and locks for in-line use, or at a 60┬░ angle to form a comfortable pistol grip.


Please post examples of others that you know of whether well-known or something interesting but obscure.

As far as I can tell that tool is no longer made but used to be in the $25 range. Their current multitool crop is in a similar low-end range of pricing but Amazon reviews seem okay.

La Police Gear 10-in-1 shovel.

I'm excited for mine to arrive; most combined use items are camels but damnit if I don't just love camels so much.

Most of the reviews are "Haven't used it, but it looks great". Beat the crap out of yours and get back to us. It looks cool though.

I think a "spetnaz" style shovel is the classic example of a less-camel multitool, I've always been a bit anti-shovel for boot packing but the Titanium models from Russia are light enough that I'm starting to consider it:

Packing in the head and cutting yourself a longer-then-factory haft might yield a lot of tool for the weight. A tomahawk or axe with a good Hammer-Pole is another good one that doesn't swing too far into feature creep.

A saw is too important (and too light) a tool for me to sacrifice anything in the name of multi-purpose, but the Hill's suggestion makes more sense then most. This old post inspired my EDC/INCH tool kit:

https://www.edcforums.com/threads/custom-pocket-victorinox-leatherman-topeak-ratchet-driver-bit-kit.106367/

The tiny right-angle Victorinox bit driver cannot be over rated, I can carry a full set of Allen, torx, phillips and flat bits for about an altoid tins worth of space.

Other then that, my INCH tools are almost all purpose built: Axe, wood saw, snow shovel, etc. I may add a dirt shovel and perhaps some kind of auger like the bushcrafty folks do.

Dug up an old picture of my tool kit, hasn't changed in any big way that I notice:
