ALL-IN-ONE
Everyone knows the benefits of a good shovel and pick for shelter building, and fighting. A crowbar is also a great survival tool when faced with prying open a lock, door, or using it as a lever to lift heavy objects. As a fighting tool, it can have some devastating results. Gear Up Center has combined these two tools to make an irreplaceable survival must have.

Neat,... but I think 'ShoBar' is a better name for it? That would have made it much :cool:er. :D

I've often thought my grilling spatula would be a good anti-zombie weapon...but I probably wouldn't use it for grilling afterward :?

i think i have a new welding project. i keep a mini shovel in my 4x4. it might as well have a crowbar handle instead of the wood/plastic.

IMHO, nothing new. We sharpened the blades of our e-tools in vietnam. Theoretically, to be used as a weapon. I just thought it made it easier to dig with. I'd really, really hate to be in a situation where you were forced to use one to defend yourself. Much less, kill somebody.

I've sharpened all my e-tools. Out of habit, I guess. I suppose having a crowbar for the handle would be cool.

I've got a shovel from a surplus store, several hammers, and a crowbar. Since they're not welded together I can have three people in the fight (or working) at the same time.

just a thought here...

if you needed the business end of that thing, like the crowbar to pry like you mean it or the hammer to bash something with great vengeance and fuuuurious anger. (yes I quoted Sam Jackson) do you REALLY want a shovel on one end, much less a sharp one?

I see that as an accident waiting to happen in a situation that's bad enough as it is without hurting yourself on an poorly designed implement.

Reminds me of the Chinese military "swiss army shovel" commercial floating around a while ago..

EDIT to add, I was kind of hoping the guy was going to Ginsu dice his rubber raft dingy and sing as well but alas to no avail.
