Good tool to keep in the car – Wilderness Survival Steel 4-in-1 Shovel + Spade + Steel Pick + Saw Reviews

posted by DavidPx on 07/31/2011 Certified Owner

Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

Pros:
The shovel is unfold and feels pretty sturdy while digging. The saw edge, while it feels totally dull actually will cut through small branches with a bit of effort. Don't expect to go through any logs though.
Cons:
As can be expected for a collapsible shovel it's pretty short so you have to bend way over while digging. Also the hinges will get full of dirt/sand thus making them a bit stiffer to use. I'm concerned about lock collar threads eventually getting gritted up.
Other:
Bottomline:
A handy item to keep in the trunk of your car. I think the price could be a bit lower though, but you do need to consider that they have to mail this heavy item internationally.
