Average Guy's Newest Favorite DIY Tools

I love tools. What else would you expect from the Average Guy? Here are some of the tools I have found to be most useful lately. Please click on the Tools link above to see the almost complete list of tools the Average Guy recommends for do-it-yourselfers.

The switch blade action on this knife makes it safer than the standard utility knife. I have young kids and this added safety is a plus. I bought this one to replace my retractable utility knife. I needed two hands each time to open and close the jammed blade because it was gunked up with drywall and plaster. This knife is easy to open with one hand and replacing the razor blades is just as easy.

This is one of those tools that has many uses. More uses than indicated by its 5-in-1 name. It is one tool that I always throw into my tool belt when heading off to tackle a new project. It opens paint cans, prys trim off, removes caulking and so much more. I recommend having atleast two of these around the house.
