Friday Gear Report: 6/3/11

Meet the new Crovel, a new spin on the classic military folding shovel.


It slices, it dices, it saws, it hammers, it prys…

All-In-One: The Crovel (shovel + crobar) eliminates the need for serval tools – eliminating extra weight and increasing versatility.

The Edge: The strength and sharpness of the edge gives you the ultimate cutting, chopping, sawing surface that will keep its edge even if you loose yours.

Extras: The handle is 19 inches hardened goose neck crowbar with 1.5 x .75 in hammer face on the end to add additional strength and function. 550 paracord is wrapped on the hand to add grip strength and to give you 15 tf.. of life saving materials that can be used in thousands of different ways.

At 5.5lbs it’s no lightweight, but the manufacturer says it does so many jobs it will easily replace 45lbs. worth of gear and tools from your pack. The Crovel sells for $98.75 and like the weight, the manufacturer claims it will save you $550 dollars in gear. Such a deal.

I am still waiting for the Chinese shovel to hit stores though…

    The Crovel people have already upped the steaks and built a better unit call “CROVEL EXTREME”
    It is one multi-tool that is truly a grab and go tool for all emergencies even for hoards of killer zombies. Check it out:
