    Better be high quality for the price...I like the para cord wrap and the breaching hook at the end. I'd have to see one in person to have an opinion on it to be honest.

    I'm guessing the poor thing will soon be consigned to the closet in your home, or hidden in the trunk of your car.

    The trunk of your car would be perfect for it, definitely not something you take on a hike.

    It appeared to be of decent quality, and I love the thought/innovation that went into it, probably just a little less useful then a Leatherman, which would be great.

    I'd rather have a couple of purpose-built tools that work than one that tries to do too many things.

    +1 - but if you want a cool "multi purpose" tool check out the "skatchet"

    Definately would not use as an ax with the poor welds on the shovel head and light gussets. I see the head flying off after a few chops, rather just carry a small camp/pack ax from Gerber or the like for that chore.

    It's a tool for the rig not hiking,so you can get a shovel for around $20 and a crowbar for another $6? But I have about 4-5 of each,so for $100 it's not gunna fly off the shelf.

    If so "tool" is misspelled!!


    Eight U.S. Presidents have been NRA members. They are: Ulysses S. Grant,
    Theodore Roosevelt, William Howard Taft, Dwight D. Eisenhower,
    John F. Kennedy, Richard M. Nixon, Ronald Reagan and George Bush

    80 MILLION gun owners didn't shoot anyone today, a few criminals did!

    why would someone put a pointy,jaged and sharp object on the end of a crow bar? They probably have never used one. Dangerous!

    after using many E-Tools,,,,They all suck!
    Buy a $10 shovel and cut off the handle at 20"
    Pick-Matock do the same. Better tools, 1/3rd the price and almost the same weight!

    I had a Skatchet, good for survival in the woods, but I'd rather have an Axe and a file to sharpen it with.
