Hyde 10-in-1 Multi-Tool

hyde_multitool.pngWe agree with our pal Mark Clement that the 5-in-1 (or 6-in-1) is one of the most useful tools that a guy can own. When we're on a site, ours spends a lot of time in our back pocket and does duty as a scraper, a pry bar, a chisel, a blade, a little hammer, and whatever else we need done. We also like that it looks like a Klingon weapon.

So we just stumbled across the Hyde 10-in-1, which has apparently been out for a couple years, and adds some functionality to the fantastic little tool. The big trick of the new 10-in-1 is that it comes with four screwdriver bits that can click into the rear of the handle. You're probably reading this thinking, 'who cares, I'll just use my regular screwdriver." But to a painter doing prep, this could be a real time saver, especially for removing switch plates and outlet covers.

It looks like there is some kind of on-board bit storage that flips out of the handle. Otherwise it's the same old 5-in-1.

The 10-in-1 costs $6, which is strange because Hyde's 6-in-1 goes for $8-$10. Huh?
