Description

Show Description

This is a strongly-built shovel; the connector tube and blade have been heat-treated after welding to relieve residual stresses and produce a rugged shaft-to-blade interface.

  • D-grip handle for easy grip; it features a unique ice axe loop attachment point.
  • Handle and blade are red for easy location in the snow.
  • Dry-stash compartment in handle.
  • Multiple slots in the blade allow easy attachment to pack, rigging an emergency rescue sled with skis, or rigging as a deadman snow anchor.
  • Available in two versions: ultralight short or longer telescoping handle.
