Thanks dear friend.
Thank you for this comparison! Very helpful!!
God I wish the soil around me was that soft and rock free…
Groovy dig music my man ✌🏼🤖
The USMC gerber E tool really is the best. Fucker will dig through anything for a long long time. Don’t even need to have the pick or saw blade there. those are just things that will break first & hardly be used. All anyone ever needs to do is chop and scoop. Would be curious how the "SOG" brand E tool would stand up to the gerber. SOG was endorsed by Gunny R Lee Ermy & is very similar but only cost 17 dollars.
You got that right about Gerber.
every gerber product i have ever owned did exactly what it was designed to do … good equipment.
I’m more interested in your gloves. What gloves are those??
why is it called an "e" tool?
Never thought about the toilet seat option.
I like it!
Man I have been buying e tools for about 2 years and I keep having the same issue. The washer in the front bends and takes the form of the metal ot pushed up against. And forget taking a shit. Basically holding myself up. Is the Gerber the strongest one uve used?
Never use these shovels in normal straight mode. It’s just so much easier when the shovel part is 90 degrees.
I spent 10 years in the ARMY and I have dug a lot of hasty fighting positions with the old all steel folding E-tool. We were also taught to use our E-tool for fighting when everything else was gone. I just don’t think I could stake my life on a folding shovel with plastic parts in critical positions. you mention that the E-tool has gone through a lot of changes over the years, and that is true, as recent as WW II U.S> forces carried a single piece handle, with folding head ( much as the CRKT one) E-tool, and some countries still do. I still prefer the tri-fold design, but even with the weight, I would certainly choose the all metal ones we had back in the 80’s-90’s when I was in to the plastic component ones. oh, and no grunt is ever without a means of conveyance, were you not issued 2 functional pair of LPCs?? ;P
Forget about E tool, they should just be called tactical shovels
wierd but how did you sit on it on that for a crapper?
Lol when you said they make a great seat then flipped the pointed pick side up I was like " wait hold up"
I just realized I have the same gloves as this guy does
What are those gloves?
Cameraman should catch a shovel with his face
Saw on any E-tool is useless I have an Ames E-tool and it is a solid shovel. I also have the cold steel special forces and it is my favorite to be honest. I have a silky gomboy porofessional 240 for sawing.
I’m looking for a good survival/tactical shovel for the outdoors. I don’t want it to have any attachments on the handle because I feel like it reduces the strength in the handle and it can be a possible breaking point. I just want a good shovel that I can carry around that have a sharp edge and can be used a bit like an axe or at least it can chop
I don’t care what shovel you are using, if it goes in the ground that easy we aren’t digging on the same planet..
0:17 The one on the right can be used as an improvised weapon much better, then the one on the left according to my experience
I wanna see how you fight with it per your training.

"Gerber" is Finnish army field shovel from 1990’s. Designed, tested, certified and fielded way before Gerber had anything to do with it, thats why its solid.
Can you please do a review of the annihilate assassin survival shovel
So the Glock eTool is best, then. Got it.
The tilting of the CRKT blade is way too straight and the handle plastic strips make the handle extremely unhandy (for my small hands lol), as you mentioned the eye of the trencher is not optimal for operating and digging. I modified mine by changing the blade angle so one can dig a bit more comfy, further I milled out the black flat rubber thing of the handle at the top and now have a handle that easily fits 2 to 3 finger in (which is a big improvement in my opinion). In addition I shortened the handle of mine by approx half to reduce weight and increase package abilities for my bushcraft trips. I am looking forward wrapping the remaining handle in olive paracord, for getting a more bushcraft color and additional cordage just in case 🙂 probably I am going to try making a kydex sheath cause the original sheath is a bit crappy.
Great vid of yours! Kind regards 🙂
I have an old E germany surplus . Heavy as hell but solid and works great . Dug an outdoor ejector pit 6′ deep in shale .
My friend Fred the IOWA KID Copley adviced me to always carry an e-tool when out in the boonies..
Is this guy/channel trustworthy? Gloves and boots seem a little too clean to be giving opinions about dirt slinging devices..
CRKT is fantastic once you get rid of the tactical shit and swap out the handle for a real one.
Dug my share of fighting holes and scud bunkers with a good old e-tool. Semper Fi
Lesche mini sampson with ball handle…lighter, all steel…not even comparable!
Both too small, you get back ache. just get a regular shovel and sharpen the edges , work as an axe for chopping wood also.
can you show the fighting moves with the e-tool?
The gerber junk you mentioned is popably disigned in the USA, the working gerber stuff is just renamed fiskars gear, designed in Finland.
Ames 82, all day, what would you want in Stalingrad, not plastic, Semper!!!
I’d pay the $100. Buy once instead of risking the gerber breaking like he mentioned.
The one you have with you! That’s the answer!
Glock is better
I have the Gerber, and have had one for many years. I’m planning on getting another one soon. I like how small it collapses down. The CRKT one seems like it would only be good for packing in a vehicle or keeping at a campsite.
Gerber’s stuff IS junk.
The only good thing they make (folding shovel and axes) are Fiskars products (but made in USA instead of Finland)
The gerber one is actually originally made for finnish army by fiskars. (Thats why its the only good product they make)
Gerber actually has only one difference and thats the sawblade part.
Longest crotch shot I’ve ever watched 😐
I carried my e-tool all over the world for 23 years. And never used it. Never…… Not once….
Useless and weighed a lot.
They’re also used for EMI.
