NEWS – When someone asks an EDC fanatic to list popular multi-tool brands, they will obviously say Leatherman, Gerber, and SOG, but I don’t think many will think of DeWalt. Maybe that should and could change because I just stumbled upon the DeWalt DWHT71843 MT16 Multi Tool. Terrible name, but everything else about it is interesting. First of all, the MT16 features stainless steel construction with soft grip panels and it packs in a lot of tools including:

  • Spring-Loaded Pliers
  • Spring-Loaded Needle Nose Pliers
  • Spring-Loaded Wire Cutter
  • Knife Blade
  • Serrated Knife Blade
  • Scissors
  • Wood/Metal File
  • Wire Stripper
  • Phillips Screwdriver
  • Small Screwdriver
  • Medium Screwdriver
  • Large Screwdriver
  • Fold-Out Carabineer/Lanyard Hole
  • Ruler
  • Bottle Opener
  • Can Opener

The tools can be accessed when the multi-tool is in the folded/closed position which isn’t the case with many other multi-tools. But the biggest thing that impresses me with the DeWalt DWHT71843 MT16 Multi Tool is the price. It’s only $24 on Amazon. I hope to get my hands on one soon to see how it stacks up to some of the big names in multi-tools.

    No, no, and no. A gas station multi tool. Good for the glove box just in case but it will fail quickly. I’ve got a 35 year old Leatherman in my EDC. I know its limitations and barring loss it’ll last forever. You get what you pay for.
