Coghlan's Folding Camp Shovel
Not a bad shovel. Very compact for camping,hunting etc. The blade stays tight but the paint chips off the blade real easy but overall its a good shovel.

Good price for what you get
It's actually not as cheap as I thought it would be. I keep this product with my ATV so when in a jam, I know this product will not only be very use full but work well too.

That "old" folding shovel.
Alright, this shovel is modelled after military surplus, like most of your camping gear thats painted green, this shovel it pretty good at what it does, mine has a serrated edge, this does NOT cut wood, or metal, or anything like that, I found out how it does when you try to cut wood, you might only get as fas as the bark of the tree and no further, I think it cuts snow and ice best. This shovel is okay at making quinzhees, but might not be ideal. one thing I did like about this was the versatility of this shovel, it can replace the frying pan, though its not all that ideal, just lacks an all around lip. so, you might need some pretty nifty spatula work if your gonna use this as a frying pan plus you might want to get rid of the paint before you do. This shovel is not the best as far as weight goes, but it makes up for it in versatility. This shovel doesn't throw very well, well, as far as I can tell, if you can throw these with accuracy and consistency, good for you, please write a review or something telling the rest of us how please. anyhow, I think that just about covers it, oh yeah, and though this shovel can be treated indifferently and still do the job it is best that you take care of these shovels.

Good for the price
Folding shovels are a great thing to have when you're camping. I'm used to military grade shovels. Though this doesn't meet that quality, it is a good value for the dollar. Don't dig into hard soil as I wrecked my first shovel doing such. It's meant for more light duty applications and uses.

This shovel is a must have when going camping. It folds up compact to easily pack in your gear and it great to use to put out the campfire at the end of a day.
