I am a sucker for sharpened shovels, especially when they don’t cost an arm and a leg. The Recon Survival Tool came to my attention via EJ Snyder who, according to his Facebook page, has been using one for about a year and it has been performing well.
This tool looks like a real outdoor multitasker with design elements meant to stand in as a shovel, brush hook, hatchet, saw, hammer, and knife. The handle seems to be relatively well designed with a guard and the ability to change where your grip depending on your task.
Outdoor Adventure Supply who markets the Recon Survival Tool states that it is designed and patented in the USA (likely made over seas somewhere). It is made from some non-specific stainless steel with G10 handle slabs and weighs less than 2 pounds. The Recon Survival Tool comes with a sheath and ferro rod.
