NEAR ZERO’s Titanium shovel weights only 6 ounces (12 ounces with included 21″ handle and custom quick-release pin) and provides a perfect balance between lightweight and usability; use it to easily stir a fire, pull out a tinfoil dinner from the coals, or dig a trench. No more need to use that worthless handheld trowel, or carry an overweight folding military shovel!
It can also be used as a compact shovel for backpacking, or to keep in your car, boat, ATV, for emergencies, clear out snow and ice, get out of the mud, or for working in the garden. It is made of hardened TA1 titanium alloy material. If camping with a fire, or for a lightweight sturdy emergency tool, it is a must-have!
The shovel comes with a hardwood handle pole 21 inches (54 cm) long, and a custom quick-release pin, or purchase the shovel head separately (to not include handle or quick-release pin). The entire shovel, with the pole, weighs only 12 ounces. The shovel head is 5 inches (13 cm) wide, 9.5 inches (24 cm) long, and 1.5mm thick. The handle insert is 22 cm wide, with a 7 mm hole on the side for the quick-release pin. When you connect the shovel head to the handle of our compact camping shovel, it acquires a total length of 28 inches (72 cm). The handle easily collapses from the shovel head for compact storage. The handle pole fits perfectly inside a regular size hiking backpack.
