My favorite tool is this hammer, that belonged to my father. This wonderful hammer, which I think is technically called a ball peen hammer, is a number of tools in one.
The handle unscrews and inside is this useful screwdriver.
You can unscrew the end of this screwdriver and inside is a somewhat smaller screwdriver.
In turn, the end of this screwdriver unscrews and inside is yet another screwdriver.
Finally, you can unscrew the end of this relatively small screwdriver
and inside as you have probably guessed is yet another screwdriver.
Although having a five-in-one tool may be extremely useful, this is my favorite for two reasons other than utility. First, this belonged to my dad, who has a kind and gentle man, Second, this hammer and screwdriver set delighted me as a child. Having this lovely tool provides me with fond memories. I can remember being so enchanted with taking apart each tool only to find yet another.
