Camp Shovel

This Camp Shovel is an awesome tool. It is perfect for everything from working in the garden to strapping to your pack to head out into the boonies. Honestly, I keep one in all my vehicle as well. If anyone asks, I tell them its there to dig me out of sand and snow. That is true, but I’ve also used my Camp Shovel to dig cat holes so I could use the bathroom on the road and on the trail. This Camp Shovel is a utility tool that is a must have.

The other reason I like this Camp Shovel is that it is one piece and it is very well built. You can use this Shovel to dig and chop and it can take a serious amount of abuse and still be good to go after your arms are tired from swinging it. It is also a very serious self defense weapon. It has decent reach, is well built, and can be used as a blunt force or edged weapon depending on how you are holding it. If it is a fight for your life you can use it like an axe. If you just want to send a message you can hit them broadside and let the bruises help your enemies remember why messing with you is a bad idea.

The real reason I have this Cold Steel Camp Shovel in my vehicle? To beat in Zombie skulls if the biting starts while I’m out and about in my vehicle.

Camp Shovel Scoring

This Shovel can have a High Impact on your survival and scores a 510/1000. While this Folding Shovel is awesome if you have to pack it in very limited space this Camp Shovel is one piece and is much easier to use as a self defense weapon, giving it a clear advantage.
