Condor Tool & Knife CTK2818 Wilderness Survival Shovel, Canvas Sheath
CN2818: Wilderness Survival Shovel
Condor Tool & Knife
A shovel's main purpose is to dig. This doesn't mean that it can't do other things. Enter the Wilderness Survival Shovel, which features a welded backplate which makes the entire head virtually indestructible, like nothing else on the market right now. The welded backplate also serves as a point for pounding, as does the tip of the handle. The two sides feature a strong chisel ground edge that can be filed sharp, for chopping or pounding. The steps are facing towards the back for a more flattened, compact package. This shovel is smaller than other shovels, to fit in a pack, or store inside a vehicle easily. Includes an American ash wood handle and canvas MOLLE compatible sheath.
