The Trucker's Friend


Oh man, just look at this thing. It's called the Trucker's Friend and it really makes us wonder who who exactly are the trucker's enemies.

According to the website, the tool is "specifically designed to meet the needs of professional truck drivers." What needs are those? Dismembering hitchhikers?


"Anyone know where I can get a Trucker's Friend?"

The tool has:

  • Curved Axe (fully resharpenable)
  • Hammer and Nail Puller
  • Spanner (for hose couplings)
  • Pry Bar and Lever
  • Tire Chain Hook
  • Wire Twist (for removing lightweight security seals)
  • Ice and Debris Remover

Can you imagine stopping at a gas station in the middle of nowhere and a semi pulls up next to you and out pops some dude with this thing in his hand. Oh, just scraping a little ice, no big deal. Nothing to see here.

If you want one of these, it's $60 at Amazon.
