Abstract

The present invention provides a hand tool for providing ergonomic support via a brace structure that is pivotally connected to a first end of an intermediately-disposed handle. A stem extends between and couples a working element of the tool to a second opposed end of the intermediate handle. The hand tool is thereby modifiable in its operating and storage configurations to most efficiently meet the needs of the user.
