When things go south and you know what hits the fan, it’s a shovel that can surprisingly help you cut, saw, pick, and dig your way out of a dire situation. It would be almost comical if it weren’t actually true.
The new CRKT Trencher tactical shovel is more of a multi-tool than just a shovel, boasting an aggressive wood saw on one side of the shovel head and a beveled edge for chopping through tree roots and wood on the other. Three ergonomic positions to choose from accommodate just about any angle you’re working from, while a reinforced steel tip was made for piercing straight through rocks — or an attacker. – $65
