Most of you probably don’t know that for every summer in high school and college I worked for my father’s commercial construction company doing manual labor and carpentry. It was a great job that gave me a great skill set, but more importantly I learned about what tools were crap and what tools were great.

Most tools on a carpenters tool belt start at $20 and when you think about how many they carry it is easy to see how fast that all adds up — so carpenters are prone to buying the best they can afford so that it lasts a really long time.

One of the best tools I was every introduced to was this Klein screwdriver.

Usually I would say run away from these types of multi-bit screwdrivers, but not this time. I own four of them. Yes, four. I bought my first one back in 2003 and I still have it and use it.

I beat things in place with the back of it and have never had an issue. I keep one in my car, one at my desk, one in both of my tool bags. This is something that really everyone should own — it is truly fantastic.
