Pass up the gardening section at your local hardware store and snag yourself a military-grade survival shovel. Compact and portable, the TG Tactical Shovel is perfect for your backpack, bug-out bag, garage, or trunk. Composed of high-carbon steel, this shovel doesn’t break, bend or take any nonsense. The dual pickaxe and shovel head can be configured and locked into many different positions to suit your needs. A saw formed into the shovelhead, a concealed whistle and a compass built into the handle are excellent for hiking and camping. It even has a bottle opener for your “hydration needs.” Tool time will never be the same again.
