Multi-tools have become part of the landscape in the last few years — some of them are lifesavers and some are, well, not.  The 14-in-1 multi-tool from Sheffield sports the normal line up of multi-tool fare, but stands out because of a hammer head mounted prominently at the top. 

The 14-in-1 has a can opener, knife blades, drivers, and pliers, in addition to the hammer.  The Sheffields we have in the shop actually are pretty useful especially when you consider the price tag normally associated with them.

But a hammer?

The hammer head located on one side of the linesman pliers with a nail puller on the other does seem to dominate the tool.  It doesn’t look as if the tool will fit well in a pocket or really have enough heft to facilitate its use, either.  But hey — if you think that your hammer has always been missing brass bolsters, this could be your rig.

    Their website doesn’t seem to list size specs, but I imagine that this is more in the “Jack of All Trades…Master of None” category, moreso than the other multi tools. It will either be too big as a multi tool or too small as a hammer and probably not too useful as either. Damn ugly too.

    I’m attracted to multitools, with the grand illusion that it’s like having X number of tools in one convenient package, but they’re generally too compromised to be good for anything other than the lightest of tasks. And the more ‘tools’ that are added, the less effective the whole unit becomes.

    I love multi tools, but Fletcher is right, they are only good for simple or non-intensive tasks. But that’s what the rest of our toolbox is for! When I go to their website, it looks like its another company, Great Neck Saw, of which i have several of their tools. I was not aware that Sheffield was one of their brands. Looks like a pretty cool tool..ideal for the single ladies in their apts….they need tools also!

    The hammer might be useful, but I’d ditch the nail claw since it will probably snag on everything, and you’ve already got pliers.

    This little multi-tool is amazing! I asked my wife for one Father’s Day 2012 and I wear it on my belt over my rear pocket. This hammer has saved me tons of grief at work loosening steel cover plates people have stomped down. The pliers I have used once or twice, but the knives and screwdrivers have shown their worth. For daily use, maybe not… bit for the “I would have been screwed if I didn’t have its” this tool is more useful than its more expesive friend I carry next to it. Pounds d for pound, dollar for dollar this tool gets top ranking g from me!
