A shovel is one of the tools, that dates back as far as humankind and remains widely used in today's world. Over the time it became much more, than just digging holes subject.

Any coupon code for a discount on purchase for forum members? Why such a short 30 day warranty period on a tool that is made to appear like it is supposed to be the be all - end all replacement compact tactical tool? Is the entire unit made from stainless as the description page shows, or is this just a stainless shovel head with aluminum handle components? What is the maximum force that can be applied to the handle in the chopping configuration? Hoe configuration? Digging through clay or rocky soils? The small screw that affixes the shovel head to the handle looks like it may be a weak point in the design.

For the 37" model, can the knife be attached to the full length handle to for a makeshift spear for hunting? Is there enough free space in one of the handle segments to store fishing line, hooks and basic lures and hardware?

Most importantly, where is the product manufactured? This detail seems to be omitted from the product pages.

Any chance of doing a product giveaway for some members here to do a full evaluation of the product as there are no reviews for the items? We can evaluate, test and review the product to give others a practical overview of the capabilities of this new item.

Anything with that collar lock mechanism is a nightmare.

You want a shovel use a shovel, want an axe, use an axe.

The only reason I would buy that is if I wanted 41$ of relief when I smash it to pieces out of the rage built up from trying to use it.

I have something similar, a compact entrenching tool. It works well, because it lives in the car, full time. I’ve used it to grab coals out of the fire for cooking, dug myself out a few times in dirt and snow and poop holes of course. It’s definitely less efficient than a full-sized shovel but the fact that I always have it makes it infinitely more useful. It has the same collar locking mechanism, maybe a plastic one even.

This is AWESOME!
If I wasnt leaving the country tommorrow i would order one right now!

I am not too worried about durability like some here say.. I am sure it would last me at least through an E&E ... if you are doing heavy duty shoveling you buy a purpose designed shovel.. same with the other features.. Its attraction is that you can do all those things in 1 package for emergency use.. like when snowed it.. when patrolling.. when evading... when broken down at the side of a road in winter .. etc.. I would totally put this in my vehicles trunk.

CarId not sure why you are getting pushback.. this looks like an awesome product to have in your truck for just-in-case especially for an offroad oriented crowd. :)

Back in the day in the Army we had our "E-Tool" aka "entrenching tool" always carried on our rig.. it was broadly similar in concept but not nearly as versatile.

I really want someone to buy one of these and do some actual digging in rocky soil with it.

I bet that hinge / collar doesn't hold up long. But I would love to be proven wrong.

Order came in last night and I gave it a look over, but haven’t really done anything with it yet. First impressions were, well..........This isn’t what I was expecting. After assembling it, and playing with the various options (knife, fire striker, whistle), I’m really not sure what to think. Planning a little excursion this afternoon and will beat it up, focusing a lot of attention on the spade, axe, saw, but mostly the spade locking system. It seems to have legitimate potential.

Looking forward to hearing what you think after playing around with it this afternoon.
