Hatchet Multi-Tool: Kill Zombies Or Tighten A Nut

A hatchet with wrenches, a saw, hammer, nail puller, spanner, strap cutter, glass breaker, gas-valve wrench… yeah, you know you want one.

Oh, and did you know you could use it to fight zombies, too? Of course, that’s just a little added bonus. Watch the over-the-top video below and stifle your giggles. This is serious business.

While the video might be silly, the idea of being prepared for emergencies, or just the unexpected, is prudent. The Lil Trucker packs a lot of tools into one.

Made by Philadelphia-based tool design and manufacturing company Innovation Factory, the Lil Trucker seems like a good, versatile design to include in a truck kit or bug-out bag.

At 1.3 pounds and 11.5 inches overall, it is small enough to strap on a pack or carry on a holster, yet big enough to tackle modest jobs.

As the company touts: “The Lil Trucker is a multi-tool that is the ultimate instrument for rugged outdoorsman, zombie-killing housewives, and survivalist adventurers alike.”

It was designed by firefighters with rescue workers in mind, and appears to be a handy, quite badass multi-tool that can accomplish a lot of cutting, smashing and wrenching.

The body and blade are made from a heat-treated 1055 carbon steel, and it is guaranteed for life.

For a USA-Made product, the pricing is reasonable, starting at $69 for the tool alone. Accessories and a sheath add to the price.

This is a jack-of-all-trades that could help get you out of a pickle. And, of course, you can battle zombies, so you’ve got that going for you, too.
