Pretty sure I want to include some sort of digging implement in my pack, but not sure which one. Gerber makes a couple nice ones, depending on your price range. The Gerber Gorge folding shovel runs less than $20, but pretty sure that's all you're ever going to utilize it for, and I wonder as to the durability of a shovel at that price point. On the other hand, the Gerber E-tool folding spade at least offers a serrated edge on one side of the blade, so you can get a bit of double-duty out of it, if you don't already have a good saw in your pack. It runs ~$44 at Amazon (+ tax, for me), or <$41 at Botach (free shipping, no tax for me). I know that SOG also makes digging implements, and I'm sure there's others out there too. Not 100% certain, but I think the GI issue shovels I see at GovLiquidation is the el-cheapo Gerber (no surprise, but guessing since it's govt issue, they're probably paying the e-tool price! ). Thoughts??
