Survival Day 11 (Entrenching Shovel)

I love my Entrenching Shovel. Actually, I love all three of them.

I keep one Entrenching Shovel in my vehicle in a plastic bin with flares and a few ratchet straps and other random tools. If you ask me why I keep it in my vehicle, the answer is simple. I don’t want to get stuck in the snow, and I also head out into the boonies on a frequent basis, and it is always better to be safe than sorry.

I keep another Entrenching Shovel in my garage. It is a great gardening and yard tool, and I use mine regularly when I’m working in the yard.

The third Entrenching Shovel is strapped to my bug out bag. When the biting starts, I’m ready to go.

  • 💪 A REAL WORK HORSE: Made of high carbon steel, the shovel head is strengthened and hardened by heating and quenching several times for high strength and high elasticity – it can withstand being run over by a test trolley weighing 2 tons!
  • 🏕️ WELL THOUGHT OUT DESIGN: The shovel head is fastened to the collar with 7 rivets (front) and 2 screws (back) to withstand rough prying and bending. Opposed to a regular spade, its Dual-Point Concave Edge avoids direct contact with the ground to prevent force deviation, and hence to improve and stabilize entry into hard surface. The Wide Step Shoulder allows you to easily step and apply extra force. The Double Edge design features a thinner edge for cutting and a thicker edge for splitting.
  • ⚒ VERSATILE: Though shorter than regular full-size shovels, it’s more versatile. Digging, splitting, chopping, prying, or dropping zombies in one swift blow … Gardening, camping, metal detecting, off-road … Great addition to your woodsman collection, camping pack, bug out kit …
  • ✔️ PORTABLE: Thanks to its compactness and lightweight, it’s easy to carry it around. Even better, the included nylon sheath has a velcro belt loop on the back and can be attached to belt or backpack. Perfect size to place in trunk for emergencies: digging your car out of sand/mud/snow, or self defense …
