Camping Shovel

Are you an avid camper, hiker, or even a gardener looking for a versatile tool to add to your outdoor gear? Maybe you like to be prepared for emergency situations and are putting together an emergency kit or bag. Well, look no further than the NACATIN Folding Camping Shovel, a multi-functional tool that promises durability and convenience for all your outdoor needs. And it can do more than dig holes! It’s a must-have tool for outdoor enthusiasts and survivalists.

When packing for a hiking adventure or a camping trip, the camping shovel is probably last on your list of essential items, but really shouldn’t be as it is an item that gets plenty of use – from basics such as digging out holes for toileting (catholes) to digging your tyres out of the mud or snow

Crafted from high-quality materials (strong tempered forged high-carbon steel body and easy-to-use alloy steel lock), this multi-purpose folding camping shovel is not just any ordinary shovel. It’s a multi-purpose tool that can transform into a pickaxe, hoe, saw, bottle opener, and can even pull out nails (no, not the ones on your fingers, the metal ones you would find in walls and timber)! Whether you’re setting up camp, tending to your garden, or facing an emergency situation, this shovel has got you covered.

This folding camping shovel is ideal for camping, small gardening tasks, hiking, fishing, trekking, backpacking and any other outdoor activities as it takes up very little space. In its folded position, it measures 17.2cm (6.8”) in length. Unfolded, with the handle screwed on, it measures 41cm (16.1”). It has a shovel head size of 13x10cm with a thickness of 0.2cm. Packed away into its pouch, that can be carried or worn on a belt, it measures (with shovel inside) 18x12x7cm and only weighs approx. 535g.

Half the handle unscrews to reduce the size for easy storage. And the shovel head and pickaxe fold up. To use, just screw on the handle, unfold the shovel, pickaxe or both and tighten into place by twisting the screw on the handle. You now have a sturdy tool to dig soil or sand, remove small rocks, saw branches and roots etc.

The shovel head features saw blade teeth on one side, alongside the bottle opener. The pickaxe features a hole which is the nail puller.
