FiveJoy Folding Shovel Multitool (C1) Product Review

If versatility is your main concern when choosing a survival shovel, then FiveJoy’s military folding shovel could be a great fit.

It is far more than just a shovel – it contains a wide variety of features that will save you a lot of space in your survival backpack. These include a fire starter, an emergency whistle, a hammer, and a bottle opener, to name a few. In addition to these small survival tools, the shovel also has a sharp ax blade with a serrated saw edge, made from heat-treated, high-carbon steel for enhanced durability.

This shovel does more than just dig. It can chop, peel, entrench, saw, and hook in a variety of tough terrains. Despite this, the shovel is lightweight, at only 1.2lbs, and it easily folds up, so you can take it with you in a backpack or car.

A unique feature of this survival shovel is the ability to adjust the shovel angle with its screw locking mechanism. This mechanism means it can work in a variety of positions, so that you can get the best possible dig regardless of the environment.

The handle is also durable and comfortable. Built from aluminum, it is water-resistant and has a slip-proof foam cushion, making it easy to get the strongest grip.

Although this is a high-quality survival shovel, depending on your intention you may find it to be too small in terms of practicality. As the handle is relatively short, there is less leverage to get an accurate and strong dig at times. Size could especially be an issue if you are stuck needing to survive, with some customers complaining that it is almost toy-like in size.
