The Gerber 30-000075 E-Tool with Serrated Blade is a sturdy and durable folding spade constructed from high-quality and reliable materials. With a serrated edge on half the blade to give you extra digging power, this entrenching tool folds small for easy transport and unfolds to 2 feet for use in the garden, outdoors, hunting, or on the job.
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.

It came in handy this winter when I got my Cherokee stuck (beached basically) and I had to literally dig the car out of the little hill I got it stuck in. Ground was frozen, it was 28 degrees outside, and it took me 3 hours. But I couldn’t have done it without this incredibly strong and durable trenching tool. It would have taken me 6 hours doing it by hand, or with a wooden stick. Plus, the plastic handle prevented my hands from dealing with cold metal. Which I appreciated very much.
Buying a second one so next time some one else can help me dig. And probably a third to keep around the house, just in case.
Will also make an awesome gift for anyone you know that might drive in hazardous areas, or in crazy weather.
i can't wait for some dutch oven cooking, handling the coals for the lid and bottom.
i really wish this came with the pick, but amazon didn't have it available, at all. that would be a great for field work on the farm for digging out stones , in farmfield work.
i have had 2 other shovels, that were straight wood handles, tha t folded , from the korean war. those were junk. 've tried the TSC version that mimics the gerber. .this is an absolute tank.
i am giddy with this purchase.
I also have the older version Ames USGI E-Tool which is likewise a fine folding shovel, and about half the price of the Gerber. However I like the Gerber better because it's more ergonomic, the tightening nut is higher up on the handle and not constantly in the dirt, and the pick position angle of the spade makes it more efficient to break up the ground.
The Gerber has good weight and balance.
The edges are able to be sharpened and have held the edge that I put on them making cutting through tree roots a lot easier.
The locking mechanism is solid and doesn't loosen up (like the cheap version did) when driving it into the ground.
Based on initial use, I anticipate this tool to hold up well to the tasks that I'll throw its way via backpacking, camping and off-roading.

For many applications I find it more efficient than a a full sized Mcleod. For soft organic removal it’s hard to beat. With a wide footing stance and holding the handle with both hands, shovel in hoe configuration, with digging direction pulling towards you .. wow. I’ve cleared large amounts of dirt better than with a Mcleod.
Great for digging drainage trenches. Sharp and durable blade cuts through small roots fairly easily, and some big ones too.
I have abused this shovel for years and it’s still going strong. Summer it gets trail duty, winter it’s in the car for shoveling snow if I get stuck. Or should say, for digging out others when they’re stuck!
