Any time a multi-tool looks like a hand-to-hand combat weapon right off a post-apocalypse movie, we have to gush. And gush like young girls at a Justin Bieber concert is exactly what we do at the Trucker’s Friend, a multi-purpose tool designed for the cats with greasy mesh caps, flannel shirts and a sweaty crack sneaking out the back of their pants. Or whatever other truck driver stereotype you subscribe to.
Made by Innovation Factory, the contraption integrates a number of functions that professional truckers frequently find themselves needing while out in the open road. Whether you need to hack, pry, pull or pound anything, it’s supposed to get the job done like a boss.
The Trucker’s Friend multi-tool measures 21 x 2 x 5.5 inches, with a fiberglass handle and a shock-absorbing grip. The selection of tools are all available right on the head, which include a large curved axe, a hammer, a nail puller, a spanner, a pry bar, a lever, a tire chain hook, a wire twist, a debris remover and a shank. It comes with a durable sheath for keeping the blade covered up when not in use.
