In an age of Wii, fantasy football and Chatroulette, sometimes you just want to work with your hands in the real world. Which is why we love this mo-tool axe by Brook & Hunter. It's twelve of the most commonly-used tools tucked into a handsome wood-inlayed stainless steel implement. Smaller than the average hammer and larger than a pocket knife, it's the perfect size for apartment dwellers that don't need (or have the room for) a heaping Klein bag of tools. Not to mention, it's a handy addition to your summer barbecue, camping gear or beach bag. The only thing missing that we'd certainly get a lot of use out of? A corkscrew.
