Editor's Notes

February 13, 2019:

We looked at models from the most popular tool makers, including Milwaukee, Stanley, and Klein Tools. While all three have excellent pocket models to offer, the Milwaukee Compact Ratchet and the Stanley 4-in-1 perhaps provide better usability than the Klein Tools 10-Fold, simply because the latter isn't as comfortable in the hand. The PB Swiss Insider 1 is also an all-around handy option that can be expected to last for a long time, and it's easy to keep track of the bits that come with it, because they fit into the holder securely. We also added a couple of interesting everyday carry choices, including the HexFlex Adventure Metric. It has an eye-catching snowflake shape and 15 functions, and it would make a fine gift for hobbyists and DIYers.
