Other than a brush and roller, painters everywhere use a handful of other tools. So why not put them all together and keep things compact and handy? That’s what the 9-in-1 painter’s tool does. It opens cans, cleans cracks, spreads filler, scrapes loose paint on flat and concave surfaces, works wet paint out from rollers before washing, pulls small nails and hammers them back in again. The blade is made from rust-resistant stainless steel that can be resharpened, and the handle has a high-friction rubbery overwrap, with a metal end cap for pounding imperfections below the surface before filling. This tool saves space, reduces clutter and boosts productivity.
