Pros: Overall Quality, Materials Quality, Design
Great product for the price
Pretty cool multi-use shovel that's made of tough 1055 steel. I bought mine for camping and to use as an emergency blade/chopper in the woods. It's just under 3 lbs with the sheath and is perfect for small digging jobs. It's probably hit or miss on how well the handle holds up but I'll deal with it for the cost. I suspect if you don't throw it the handle will last a long time. You can sharpen some or all of the edges and use it as a machete, light wood chopper or a weapon. The factory edge is not that sharp but good enough to use in a pinch and it's safer IMO. I am sure it'll do a great job digging and cutting roots right out of the box. Get the sheath too. It's got a loop that you can hang off of your gear or belt.
