Bought this thing for emergency for my bug out bag. Had it in the back of my jeep and just happened to get stuck in the snow right as a blizzard was blowing in. This thing was easy to put together and a absolute amazing tool in a pinch. It definitely saved my booty that day.
This thing helped me survive my snowy camping trip. I was hammering stakes into the snow and taking them out when I was ready to leave. The blade is very sharp and does cut thru branches. I don’t want to try and cut thru a brick because I want to keep it sharp. Whoever was talking crap about the carrying case is a moron. The carrying case was very well made and a very nice touch.
I actually really liked this shovel! It was fun to use. I didn't expect to use it as soon as I did, but regardless it has all the tools you need for survival. It's light and assembly is easy.
I bought this for my son. He loves it! It's so cool. My husband wanted one after he saw our sons. Now he has one.
