Light duty only
I like Gerber as a good price/quality point brand. I live in Alaska and bought this as a handy general purpose tool. I have removed some chunks of ice by locking the blade at an angle and locking it down in place with the threaded handle. Worked fine for about three months of medium level work. If the task is larger I bring something larger.The blade snapped from the handle at the joint where the metal just gave out. I have had surplus military shovels but over time they have been borrowed and they never failed with use. The edges would need resharpening and they need to be cleaned is all. I now have the schrade brand shovel of similar size and a bit more cost. Will try that.

I was doing some ninja moves, digging trench's while dancing about in a form, when the head of this thing broke off and came about 1/2 inch from cutting my neck in half!Be warned!
