There is always a need for a certain tool and often times you do not have that tool available. With this 5-in-1 multi-purpose tool from Rothco, you can count on this being less of a problem in your future. This one compact tool has attachments that come with it to turn it into a shovel, saw, pick, hatchet, and hammer. Recognizing that it is essential to have all of the attachments for maximum benefit, Rothco designed and included a black nylon carrying case for the tool and all of the attachments.
Those who are familiar with a military entrenching tool will feel very comfortable using this multi-purpose tool. While it is smaller in size than an entrenching tool, the concept is the same for extending and tightening the attachments. You will find it to be a 20-second job to transition this tool from shovel to saw and then to a hammer. While you wouldn't want to use this style of tool for a months long job, it is perfect for tackling challenges at your campsite or outdoors.
This is truly a handy little tool. While it is not made to dig trenches it would be perfect for building a shelter of getting you out of a pinch. I keep it in my Jeep just in case I go off the road in the winter months.
