Durable Construction for Heavy-Duty Use
Crafted with a powder coated boron carbon steel spade, the Gerber E-Tool can withstand extensive use in a variety of environments. The virtually indestructible glass-filled nylon handle features an open design, giving you room for a firm grip and increased leverage. The anodized 7075 aluminum shaft also gives this entrenching tool strength and durability.

Compact and Lightweight for Easy Portability
At just over 2 pounds and measuring 9.37 inches in length when closed, the Gerber E-Tool is easy to pack in to campgrounds or hunting sites, take to work, or store in your shop or shed. Its small size also works well in compact spaces where a regular size shovel won't fit.

Serrated Edge Adds Functionality
One side of the spade is serrated to give you extra power when digging in tough environments. Use it to saw through grass, plants, and undergrowth or for cutting into ice or hard dirt. The shape of the blade also helps this Gerber E-Tool enter the ground more easily.

Locks Open for Added Stability
A locking mechanism will keep the Gerber E-Tool open when in use, helping keep you safe and protected when you apply pressure during shoveling. Simply turn the ridged knob that wraps around the shaft to secure the E-Tool in the open position.

About Gerber: A History of Innovation
Savvy. Moxie. Craftsmanship. Attention to detail. These are just a few of the company traits that have contributed to Gerber's emergence as a world leader in outdoor gear. Joseph Gerber started Portland, Oregon's Gerber Advertising back in 1910, and one Christmas, he hired a local knife-maker to craft 25 sets of kitchen cutlery as client gifts. The knives were so popular Mr. Gerber ultimately left his agency to launch Gerber Legendary Blades in 1939.

It makes sense, really. An idea man gets the idea of a lifetime and turns it into a major outdoor brand--one that commands respect among knife lovers and knife makers alike. And now that same high regard is spreading in new directions, in the form of many outstanding products such as tools, personal L.E.D. lighting, and more.

I bought this to replace an "army-type" foxhole shovel that I bought at an Army surplus store. You know, the kind with the metal blade and wooden handle. That one proved useless, with its wooden handle breaking a few years ago, on its first use.

I saw similar folding shovels at camping stores. Cheap ones with plastic handles. I knew better than to buy any of those.

Then I saw this shovel here on Amazon, and hesitated because of the price. But I bought it, and am glad I did. I keep it in my pickup truck. Today, a few hours ago, my truck got stuck on an old country road. There wasn't a lot of snow, but there were "ice ruts" from the previous snowfall. If you live in northwest Indiana, near Lake Michigan, you probably know what I am writing about. Anyway, my truck got stuck in these ruts. This shovel was able to chop through the ice, no problem. The metal blade didn't break, and the metal handle didn't break. In fact, you can't even tell the shovel had been used, even though I was hacking away through hard ice for over half an hour. This shovel paid for itself today.

We were issued these E tools in the Marine Corps.. I was infantry and used it during the invasion in 03... beats the old E-Tool hands down... ligher sharper tougher and you can dig a fighting hole with it in no time not to mention actually cut down trees with it without fear of it breaking.. easy to put a new edge on when you dull it out.... I have and would trust my life with this product..

I was looking for a folding shovel to take on hikes and was stuck between varying criteria:

- Wooden handled shovels are both light and durable, but cumbersome to pack
- heavier folding shovels are durable and semi-compact, but heavy
- lighter folding shovels are....lighter and compact, but lack durability.

The Gerber 30 falls under the second category, and it can certainly take a beating. Compared to lighter shovels I've picked up in other places, like the Coleman tri-fold, or ones at Home Depot. The Gerber shovel plate is a heavier thicker steel, resists torque well, and can cut through roots and clay. Lighter shovels don't have that ability, and wear down much more quickly.

Having said that, I do believe that for backpacking, the Gerber 30 is just too heavy. It's only 2.9lbs, but when every lb counts, dropping 1.5lbs and getting a 1.xlbs light duty shovel would still be a huge improvement over trying to dig holes with your hands or a knife. Either way, having a shovel of some kind in backcountry hiking seems smart, if only to dig campfire and bury waste. While the Gerber 30 could be taken backpacking as it does fold up and isn't excessively heavy, it's really be a better addition to car-camping, or as an emergency shovel to leave in your car (next to your emergency crowbar and axe, of course). m

For some details...the steel shovel piece is thicker than most folding shovels you'd find in hardware stores, won't bend easy. The rear of the shovel plate is bent, making it easy for you to put your foot on it when digging tough soil/roots/clay. One side is serrated, but it's not really a saw. There are basically two notches, one straight for digging and one angled for hoeing.

This is one of the best shovels I have ever used. It is well constructed. Tough materials. Great size for a fold up shovel. Most shovels have a small blade, but this one has a large blade and its serrated, which is very shape and makes cutting through things very easy. It has two positions, shovel and pick. It goes into the ground with ease.I would recommend this shovel to anyone. It is worth the price.

You always wonder why someone would try to improve on something that already rocks. I've carried the original version of the US Army e-tool many a mile and have always figured the weight was worth the utility of the thing. Any number of times I've saved myself a soggy sleeping bag by digging a shallow perimeter trench around my tent. Fellow campers who laughed at my efforts could only hang their heads in the morning when me and the dogs emerged from our tent dry and refreshed, while they obviously were soggy and sleepless. And more frequently, my old school shovel has served to dig quick "cat holes" where I could take a "break" along the trail, without leaving a mess for others to "enjoy".
I saw the listing for this updated version while checking out other camping stuff on Amazon.com. As usual, I checked out a few video reviews on YouTube, and figured this product was worth a little research. I was impressed to find that this shovel/spade/pick had been adopted by NATO, and even more impressed to find out the United States Marine Corps was issuing this same item to all Marines. I liked that all the components are fabricated in Finland and Sweden, then assembled here in the USA. The price was also pretty good in light of the high quality of the product.
Now to the nuts and bolts: This thing is built like a tank, but weighs in at only around 40 ounces. The glass filled poly whatever-the-hell-it-is handle and shaft weigh next to nothing but are absolutely rigid and wiggle free. The serrations along the one edge are wicked sharp as they are right out of the box. I did touch up all edges with a file for more efficient digging and root cutting.
