I used to work with a former painter who could do just about anything with an ordinary putty knife. In addition to the usual prying, scraping, and spackling, I once saw him use one to open and eat a can of tuna at lunch break. One can only imagine what a guy like that would do with a 17-in-1 Painter’s Tool—maybe build a skyscraper or something.

Seriously, though, Hyde’s 17-in-1 Painter’s Tool has an interesting design; it’s along the lines of what a Swiss Army Knife might be if it had been designed by a painter. You can see its features in the photo and video below. I don’t normally embed manufacturers’ video but in this case I did because it’s the best way to show what the tool can do—and also because it’s kind of amusing.
