Gerber E-Tool With Serrated Spade & Pick Review

Gerber E-Tool With Serrated Spade & Pick ReviewThe new E-tool from Gerber is the best yet of their shovels and I don't see any other shovels from any company beating this one with this new tool they have added something that many army shovels have had in the past and is truly a advantage and that is a pick.

Over the years I have just about every folding shovel from the first ones were just the head folded and they had wooden handles to the newer steel tri folds. But with Gerber's improvements on this one I feel it tops them all!

Gerber E-Tool With Serrated Spade & Pick ReviewI have compared this shovel to a number of others including one that is a knock off of Gerber's shovel. I noticed that even though it looked like the Gerber it was not made as well.

I have hacked away on the Gerber shovel and was really impressed with how good it is even thought the handle looks like plastic it's not its glass filled nylon. Which is very strong and is the same stuff they used in there axes and you can bet your not going to break them! When using the shovel once you screw it together you will find that its very secure there is no coming lose or any movement in the parts once its tighten up it's as if it was all one piece very nice!

And the straps on the back can be used like belt loops as well.

 

 

Gerber E-Tool With Serrated Spade & Pick ReviewOn the blade of the new shovel they have made one of the sides of the spade serrated so you can chop threw them roots and just about anything you will run across this is something that I have seen on many army shovels and I think they should of put it on the first one but no biggy its here now and its great. The old Gerber shovel was great but with these improvements they have made it even better making it a must for the pack or on the 4x4 and the best tri fold shovel I've ever used!
