"This is a military-grade digging tool for trenches and holes. Armed with a powder-coated, carbon steel shovel head and a serrated blade edge, the E-Tool is designed specifically to conquer tough digging problems in all types of terrain. The foldable body is made of an anodized aluminum shaft and glass-filled nylon handle. The head folds back exposing a pick for loosening rock and breaking up roots."
While the Gerber can be a more expensive shovel, its lightweight, compact, and strong design provides for an ideal combination of traits. And if you need to fend off a bear, catch a possum for dinner, or paddle a canoe, the Gerber will be ready to serve.
