in most DIY home improvement jobs, you will likely need to hammer and screw but not everyone has the space to keep separate tools for each specific task. so what do you do? you get a many-in-one tool like this shiny example here: the GAM Hammer 6-in-1 Claw Hammer. first off, it is aesthetically pleasing with its nickel-plated body and solid brass handle. secondly, it has a hammer head with claw for all your hammering and clawing tasks, and its beautiful brass handle actually conceals four different screwdrivers. even the screwdrivers had you covered: it include two large Philips heads and two smaller straight tips, of which the smallest one is well-suited for mending your spectacles. there you have it. next time if you anticipate a job that requires both hammering (and possibly clawing) and screwing, you will only need one pretty hammer that cost just $19.90 to handle them all and also, do remind yourself that your do-it-all hammer is probably the shiniest among your cohort of DIY-ers. yea, you can smile to that.
