Make & Model - Kikkerland Design Inc. Wood Axe Multi Tool
OAL - 5.5 inches
Materials - Beech wood and tool steel
Weight - 9.5 ounces
MSRP - $22

Kikkerland Design produced this tool manufactured in China. It comes with 10 different functions sandwiched between two beech wood scales. The pliers also include a wire cutter and blades include an awl, serrated blade, and 2.5-inch knife blade. The tool also comes with a file, can opener, and three screwdrivers. But who could miss that hatchet-hammer combo?

– For the cash strapped, it's an inexpensive option.
– The hammer. Few multi-tools have a way to give something a good whack.
– The wood handle is elegant and reduces weight.

– The ax: Too short to do heavy work, the unprotected edge gets in the way of using other tools and it makes carrying difficult.
– A few points on the serrated edge are bent, suggesting soft metal.
– The way it's set up, it'll best handle small, odd tasks although it gives the appearance of being able to do more.
