Top 5 multi-tools for daily use
It is incredibly practical to keep a multi-tool close! With a multi-tool you will be prepared for anything. However, carrying a large versatile multi-tool could also come with some complications.
The more tools a multi-tool has, the heavier the tool will be. Do you prefer a lighter, more compact multi-tool? If so we recommend choosing one that is specifically made for daily use. When we say daily use we mean tasks in and around the house, or light tasks you can come across on the road or at work. These multi-tools, however, have less tools and functions than a large multi-tool. But let's be honest, eight functions are often more than enough! To make the choice as easy as possible we listed five of the best multi-tools for daily use.
