The Bonanza soundtrack is the best part.Nov 9, 2011 at 4:09 pm #1800182
And to think I used to backpack with the GI version of that thing…
Those guys sure have evolved the shovel to do a lot of things and the soundtrack, combining The Big Valley with The A Team? Epic.Nov 9, 2011 at 4:49 pm #1800190
Dang! I want one!Nov 9, 2011 at 5:55 pm #1800209

If they put these up for sale on a bushcraft forum, betcha they could sell more of them than even the Chinese could make!Nov 9, 2011 at 6:35 pm #1800225

Not without a bottle opener :DNov 9, 2011 at 6:41 pm #1800228
Dale it has a bottle opener too.Nov 9, 2011 at 7:35 pm #1800261
Possibly as useful as a Tom Brown tracker knife! But this being BPL I gotta ask …… Can I get it in titanium with a cuben scabbard?Nov 9, 2011 at 8:04 pm #1800274

Add to that I want a carbon fibre handle that can double as an extendable trekking pole/tent pole/avalanche probe.
Could multiuse for self-arrest?Nov 9, 2011 at 9:42 pm #1800300

I'd buy one. But ONLY if a soundtrack is guaranteed to play at all times as I use this shovel. That would be kick **s.Nov 10, 2011 at 7:43 am #1800397

I'm holding out for the titanium version with an LED light and compass.Nov 10, 2011 at 8:34 am #1800418
Wow, I can almost smell the backcountry french fries cooking…see how fast he chopped? He's the real Iron Chef. Hope all the pack rafters took note that they used TWO while in the raft. Make sure you buy an extra!Nov 13, 2011 at 9:19 am #1801264
Oh man, if we ever go to war with them we are in trouble…Nov 13, 2011 at 10:06 pm #1801503

Deucedly clever of those chaps to devise such a multi-purpose tool. What they failed to illustrate was how good it would be at chopping off heads. The Russian SPETNAZ are past masters of using an E-tool as a weapon.
But "seriousnously" now, I do keep a U.S. made folding E-tool in my RAV 4 for digging out in winter or in the desert outback. Used it several times in the winter and was glad I had it.Nov 14, 2011 at 1:18 pm #1801699
When camping … dig a mote around your tent to keep out anything unfriendly???
Why the @#!! is the guy digging a trench around the tent?
I knew I was not doing something right.Nov 14, 2011 at 4:59 pm #1801770
I can't get that theme music out of my head now…Nov 15, 2011 at 11:22 am #1802036

LOL. I can not believe I just waisted almost 9 minutes of my life watching that video. I just could not turn it off. Not even when my wife asked me to use head phones because I was enjoying the sound track just a little to loud.
I just want to know what kind of tent that was at min 7. Whats the wieght with tent stakes and line.Nov 23, 2011 at 11:35 am #1804862

This video is actually missing the final scene where they show that it can still cut a tomato after all that abuse.Nov 25, 2011 at 8:53 am #1805386

That's the way it used to be done. If it rains the water is supposed to pool in the mote. Forget site selection. Just dig a big old trench.
Long live Leave No Trace!
