If your looking at a multi use axe/shovel/whatnot I would also consider the Max Axe. Granted your Crovel may be half the price but it also does half the work, oh and if you contact the company you can get it in OD green.

Don't buy into all the hype about things seen on TV.

Better options out there that weigh less. Personally a good folding shovel and a fatmax wrecker will be lighter, cheaper, and more functional.

The price of one of them gadgets is $98 and up. No thanks. Its large and awkward and heavy @3lbs. Ill stick with my ETool that is lightweight, very effective and easy to stow. Not to mention nowhere NEAR $98.

The crovel is neat, but if you were to ever lose that thing post SHTF, you'd have just lost all your tools. Separate tools may be heavier overall, but at least they're separate and you can share them with others to work together.

There are many problems with Hollywood fantasies. If you truly insist on watching fantasy try to make an effect to separate it from reality.

The Crovel is way too expensive in my opinion. I'll stick with the ole' standard folding shovel.

Heard his company now has gov contract to make crovels for the special ops community.He had to expand his business and hire a bunch of folks to work. Glad to see someone with an idea ,market it and do well.(even if he has one thumb shorter than the other)

That video for the Chicom shovel is pretty hilarious, not only the is the imagery but the epic fanfare music is too.

Here is a review of the " Crovel "


Its too heavy , the saw sucks , and the crow bar end doesn't work well. Just get a Cold Steel Special Forces Shovel.

Very easily broken? Are you trying to bust up concrete? Mine works just fine for digging.
