The Crovel

crovel-2

I just stumbled across this thing… I do not own one, so this is less of a review, and more of a “COOL! LOOK WHAT I JUST FOUND ON THE INTERNETS!” post. The Crovel Extreme Ultimate Survival Multi-tool. This site has a hilarious review of it.

By judging from their site, they’ve had a few design changes, however, it does all of this:

  • Shovel
  • Crowbar
  • Prybar
  • Knife (no real replacement for a handheld knife though…)
  • Axe
  • Hoe
  • Hammer
  • Serrated Knife
  • Cleaver
  • Saw
  • Machete
  • Can Opener
  • Grapping Hook
  • Chair

imageWhile I love my army surplus family heirloom folding shovel when camping (see, that picture on the right? just like that one), I think it may have just found it’s replacement!

I wonder if I can still return my Gerber Gator Machete Jr. to Bass Pro Shops? I’ve only used it a dozen or so times… oh well, if they don’t take it back, I am sure that Nordstrom’s will!

Now, the only part that confuses me is the “chair” part. How can a shovel be a chair? Especially this one with a knife and saw edge on it? Am I missing something?

    • @KioyteGirl I completely agree. I see this for use only in the car-camping world, and definitely not something to lug around on the trail. The only trail use I could see this being worthwhile on would be doing trail work, where you might not need a full shovel/axe/prybar, and this tool could suffice.
