Many people love to leave the city behind and go camping or hiking in the wilderness. Of course, packing for a trip like that can be a challenge. You might need a hatchet to chop down dead trees for firewood, a shovel for digging holes, a waterproof container for matches and first-aid supplies, a hammer for pounding in tent stakes, a flashlight, a knife, a compass, and many other tools. Fitting all of those things into a backpack can be daunting, to say nothing of the weight they add. That’s why many people opt to buy a multi-purpose survival tool.

Each test has its own machine with its own collectors and lines. Wouldn’t it be better if there was one tool that could handle the majority of the tests on its own?
