Editor's Notes

April 14, 2020:

Since the development of the first Swiss army knife in the late 1800s, and with the more recent popularity of multitools, outdoor enthusiasts of all types have appreciated the benefits of a compact set of tools at their fingertips. These hammer multitools share many of the same accessories as their predecessors with the added advantage of a solid hammerhead at one end, quite often combined with other useful items, such as a hatchet or adjustable wrench. They are, however, designed to be portable, and as such don't carry the weight or swing of a traditional hammer. Choosing the best one for you will boil down to deciding which of the features best suits your needs.

As all of the ranked items include a hammer, we will categorize them based on their additional features. If you are looking for a multitool to take with you on camping or hiking trips, then a hatchet would likely be more useful than say than a wrench. The Giriaitus Survival Hunting Kit, the Rose Kuli 7 inch, and the Anumit Survival Gear are all geared towards outdoor pursuits, with the latter containing a handy flashlight too. The HunnyDoo Tools, the Vickay Multitool, the Whoer multitool, and the Sheffield Camping Series 12913 feature a selection of tools that would be handy around the home and garden, such as nail claws, screwdriver bits or adjustable and socket wrenches. For those wanting a practical option to keep in the car, the Car Safety Hammer 12 in 1 and the Off Grid Tools Survival Axe have integrated window breakers that could prove indispensable, should you find yourself in an emergency situation.
