So I wanted to share a post by my friend Dave Robertson over at Daverobertsononline.com. He posted a great article about 5 essential tools for the next apocalypse. I know we don’t do many guest posts or shoutouts here on FatherSonPreppers but I liked it.
If things hit the fan, certain tools can save your life. You need to get tools that are well made and durable. If you stop and think about it, you can probably list dozens of tools you’d like to have for a long tern survival situation, but I’m going to focus on the five basics that are absolutely necessary. Here’s my list of five essential tools for the apocalypse.
1. Pocket Multi-Tool. Okay, imagine that the world as we know it is ending. No lights, no electricity, no cell phones. All the little things you take for granted are gone, or not working. That includes electric can openers, power tools, and so on. You need a good multi-tool like the Swiss Army Huntsman by Victorinox ($35). It has two sizes of knife blades, plus both kinds of screwdrivers, a can opener, bottle opener, wood saw, wire stripper, hole punch, and a few other tools. If you’re bugging out and on the move, these handy tools are way easier than carrying all those bulky tools individually. Plus, Swiss Army Knives are guaranteed for life. Another option is the Leatherman Sidekick ($32). It has most of the same tools, plus a built-in set of pliers. It’s only guaranteed for 25 years, but both Victorinox and Leatherman are known for quality. Beware of cheap quality multi-tools. Some are poorly designed and frustrating to use. Others may fail you when you need them most. These two tools will serve you well. They’re a great option for EDC, for a bug out bag, or to keep in your tool box.
