Shen Ao Z3 Multipurpose Shovel

Shen Ao Z3 Multipurpose Shovel

Every now and then someone comes along and reinvents the wheel. We never would have imagined a shovel getting that kind of treatment! The Shen Ao Z3 Shovel is a new modular, backpacking shovel that replaces multiple tools in your kit. You could almost call this, a survival shovel. Sure, attempts have been made before, but they usually resulted in a hollow, weak handle design. A shovel with tools is no good if it cannot handle just being a shovel.

The specs: Overall height is 3’9″ and constructed of air craft grade aluminum. The shovel features a modular handle that unscrews with multiple tools.

Features: The shovel handle holds several tools including:

  • A 320 lumen, waterproof flashlight that also doubles as a charging bank for USB devices. The flashlight has a magnetic end so you can stick it on metal services.
  • Magnesium rod for fire starting and a rescue whistle for signaling.
  • A high carbon steel knife with saw blade on the spine. It also has a bottle opener cut into the beginning of the blade.
  • An ice pick that can be lashed up and double as a spear.
  • A shovel head. The head features a serrated edge for cutting and the adjustable collar can cut wire.

The shovel has predicted price point of $234. This will be announced later this year at the Outdoor Retailer Summer Market.
