Debatably the most useful tool of all time, hammers have been around since practically the dawn of time (primitive hammers made from sinew and rocks have been found to date back to 30,000 B.C.).
Get a grip! Adjustable wrenches are versatile, allowing users to tighten and loosen many different sizes of fasteners with one tool.
The self-centering Phillips head, named after American businessman, Henry Frank Phillips, is one of the most common types of screws and screwdrivers in the U.S. and Canada.
Portable and versatile, the hacksaw is usually made with durable heavy-duty steel. Equipped with fine teeth, allowing users to easily cut a variety of materials.

A measuring tape allows its users to achieve a precise measure of an object.
The utility knife provides a sharp edge for cutting designed to be retracted when not in use. Its versatility makes a must-have for contractors.
