    June 2015 UPDATE:

    Trowel, saw, and stove info: QiWiz.net

    Before placing an order, please check the shipping page on my website (a link to this page is available on any page that you order from).

    "Original", "Big Dig", and "MEGA Dig" trowels are available. Unless I am out of town or on trail, I can generally mail them out the very next day after you place your order. Can you dig it?

    All trowels ship with the Advanced Cathole Users Manual, including my famous "soup" recipe.
    HINT: Not the kind of soup you generally think of.

    Trowels3

    Prices are:

    $29 for the smaller Original, < 0.4 oz, 6" long
    $36 for the larger Big Dig, < 0.6 oz, 7.25" long
    $39 for the largest MEGA Dig, 0.9 oz, 8.5" long

    Big Digs have been by far the most popular model, though the MEGA Dig is too new to really know if many folks will go for its generous capacity.

    If I need to ship your trowel outside the continental USA, this is easily arranged. I've sent trowels to more than a dozen countries on five continents.

    Ordering is easy as pie at my new website: QiWiz.net

    Join the legions of BPLers who dig my trowels! Ultralight, nearly indestructible, cuts turf and small roots with ease. You know you know you WANT one.

    My Personal experiences:

    Digging catholes
    Digging out a spring or stream bed to scoop or filter water more easily
    Collecting mineral soil for a mound fire
    Digging tent stakes out of frozen soil when winter backpacking
    Scooping coals out of the fire to create a bed of coals to bake scones

    Others' actual experiences:

    Shoehorn
    Spoon to eat with when primary spoon broken or lost
    Tent stake when extra holding power needed in soft soil or high wind

    Other possibilities worth mentioning:

    Hide scraper
    Fish scaler
    Cut cheese blocks, Spam, sausages
    Backscratcher
    Personal defense
    Cutting rope or cord; whittling; making tinder (especially if you sharpen an edge)

    I'm sure there are others. Anything that involves digging or scraping.

    May 25, 2011 Update: Have now got enough titanium to make many trowels. Do not expect to run out anytime soon. Once I have filled existing orders, I will be creating an inventory so that I can ship the next day. I expect that this will be the case after Memorial Day 2011.

    Can you get one to me in 1 week? If no, I'll catch you next time. I have a trip starting Memorial Day weekend. I can't wait to poo in the woods.

    THE BAD NEWS

    Because of increased material (and postage) costs, prices are now $29 for Original and $36 for Big Dig. Sorry about that, but I've just had to pay 100% more for titanium than previously.

    Add $2 for shipments outside the continental USA.

    THE GOOD NEWS

    I'm going to make trowels ahead of orders so that you can get your trowel very quickly with only the wait of receiving a first class USPS package.

    PayPal trowel payments and email questions should still be sent to me at robkelly54 at gmail dot com

    Got my Original Dig. I was worried it would be too small but it's actually a great size. I was going to do a full field test it in my yard last night but ….. I have neighbors.

    I was also pleasently supprised that it came with a stow poutch. I folded the tyvec envelope you sent it in, taped it long-ways, and cut open the short end. It fits the Dig and my Ti tent pegs at .15oz!

    "It comes with instructions and everything. Seriously light"

    In Russia they call that a caviar spoon.

    Fitting… It would be a tough call which I ate first.
