Gerber Folding Spade Review

Gerber Folding Spade Review

Gerber Folding Shovel Handy Features:

  1. Heavy duty, good when being lightweight isn’t an issue
  2. Compact
  3. Sturdy case
  4. Easy to fold
  5. Very durable; we have used it to chop through tough, dry soil and rocks
  6. The handle can be folded half-way down, which makes it easier to chop and dig with in some situations


  1. This shovel is somewhat heavy – we do not recommend lugging it along on long backpacking trips


  1. Fold the handle in half if you’re digging at something waist-high or above, such as a hill or a pile of snow
  2. Carry this in the back of your snowmobile, 4-wheeler, or vehicle

Gerber Folding ShovelThis compact shovel does what it needs to do.  NOTICE: this shovel has been discontinued and replaced with the Gerber E-Tool, which has a serrated blade and weighs about 3 ounces less.
