    My Swiss army pocket knife. It's a medium sized one (not the one with just a blade and a can opener, but not the one with a coffee grinder and a circular saw either).

    I carry it all the time and when for some reason I forget it I realize just how much I use it.

    It's not difficult to see, but it can be really hard with only one eye.

    Most Used: impact driver
    Most useful: trailer for the lawn tractor
    Most fun: tie between the propane torch and chainsaw

    I like the propane torch too--for making creme brulee. (I originally used it for putting pine tar on my xc skis. That was a while back.)

    Why do you like them?
    They are a quality and well-designed tool. Originally used them for irrigation work but have found them to be useful for lots of tasks around the house. These are my favorite and most used ones https://www.amazon.com/KNIPEX-87-01-...+5+inch+pliers super-handy little tool.

    20oz Vaughan framing hammer, circa 1985. Used to build countless homes, decks and whatever needed building... or wrecking.

    Candidates for worst tool I own--almost all my cordless drills--ryobi, makita, dewalt--the chucks slip on all of them. Maybe I'm just not strong enough to tighten them enough, but my very old makita 9V never slips.

    ^I have been impressed with this Bosch drill for at home use, and the price is right. https://www.amazon.com/Bosch-DDB181-...cordless+drill

    Wiha makes some nice pliers too.

    As far as simple but incredibly well made tools, I love my wera screwdrivers.

    Just one? No, I'm going to roll with this one a little. Good tools I work with a fair amount and wouldn't want to do without:
    - Snap-on open/box end wrench set and socket ratchets
    - skis, Blizzard Kabookies, Scarpa boots
    - Milwaukie impact driver
    - Swiss Army Knife
    - Husky chain saw
    - Vise (not Vice!) Grip pliers
    - pulaski

    I got lots of tools - my place is a dad house, I like to do my own work and I like to have the tools on hand. I have a Fiskars pole saw and loppers that are pretty good tools, but I just hate using them. I really love my snowblower, but I wish it was a Husky or Honda.

    Those are nice. I think the red is what sold me on the Felo.

    I also love my knipex pliers. I like them enough I have bought more to give as gifts to brighten my friends garage experiences.

    This week it is the 2 foot long, 1/2" breaker bar.
    Damn, we're in a tight spot!

    Got one of those, love it. Weirdest thing I've ever had delivered from Amazon. I Always hum the woo eee ooo tune from the Wizard of Oz when I this it on my shoulder to attack the foiliage. (btw not to go all mine's bigger than yours but mine extends to around 14 feet.)

    1 inch belt sander from Harbor Freight. Sharpens kitchen knives, scissors, shovels, mower blades easy-peasy.

    I made a pretty good living off the PC. This one's decent, but #1 son is toasting it with a fine array of 3d games.
    I probably use my loppers around here the most on keeping the drive clear as well as an electric lawn mower for tennis court maintenance.
    Then there's the flexons and the DPS Lotus 120s.

    Seriously, fuck phillips screws and screwdrivers, there are so many better options that weren't pretty much designed to strip.
