The latest in the ongoing trend of mulit-use tools, Zippo’s 4-in-1 Woodsmen saws, hammers, and chops.

It seems like an odd direction for the famous lighter maker to go in, but their new tool is interesting. As it turns out, there is a connection though…

Looking to break into the outdoors market, Zippo spun off an ourtoors/camping division in 2009. Since then they’ve been turning out gear wilderness centric gadgets.

Featuring a bow saw that cuts up to a 4″ diameter limb, mallet, stake puller, and 5″ hatchet, the 4-in-1 Woodsmen appears quit handy. It could be a decent addition to your camping gear, BOB, or car bag.

Available Spring 2013 with an MSRP of $80.
