A comparison of the MagLok Tool system and the "Max Axe 7 in 1" (NSN 5120 01 416 8568 by Forrest Tool Company) should be done within a context that addresses the following requirements by:
Providing the Warfighter true versatility, with fully interchangeable tool heads and handles to apply in any situation or theater with the objective that unit efficiency is maximized with multiple Warfighters being simultaneously employed in multiple functions.
Providing increased safety, while limiting fatigue for the Warfighter.
Providing a "Lifetime Warranty" on all parts, reflective of a proven record of durability.
Occupying less space than current tools now in service.
