Father’s Day gift idea: the Swiss army knife of hatchets

The Zippo 4-in-1 Woodsman is a smartly designed hatchet, tree saw, stake mallet and stake puller that is easily converted from one task to the next.

It comes with two saw blades, which stow away in the hatchet handle.

The hatchet blade makes a perfect handle for the tree saw when the rugged plastic case is snapped on over the hatchet blade as a support for the saw blade.

This would be a great tool for campers to gather firewood (dead wood only, please), but keep the kids away from it.

The Woodsman is $79.95 and available at zippo.com and amazon.com.
