Arva Ovo Axe Shovel -
By switching the handle on the innovative Arva Ovo Axe shovel, a user can convert the shovel into a hoe or axe. This feature is very useful on steep slopes, during an avalanche burial, allowing the searcher to move snow more efficiently than conventional shovels. This feature also makes hollowing-out a snow cave less work. The oval aluminum shaft feels good to the grip, and the handle also switches for left or right-handed users.

Weather and Wind:

  • Converts into an axe to chop through hard snow


  • Oval shaped aluminum shaft with ergonomic y-shaped handle
  • 2mm anodized aluminum blade
  • Converts into an axe or hoe for chopping and plowing (Fall 2013)

Aluminum from shaft to shovel blade, the Arva OVO Axe Shovel converts from a standard shovel to a hoe-like tool for chopping through hard avalanche debris and moving snow downhill on steep slopes, which is proven to be faster than traditional shoveling technique. Simply remove the blade from the shaft and click it securely onto the y-shaped handle and you're ready to chop. The unique y-style handle takes stress off your hand so you can dig harder and faster when seconds count, and the handle swaps for left or right-handed users. The scalloped blade is designed to blast through hard and icy snow, has several cutouts that allow for the construction of a rescue sled, and collapses down into an easily-packable size so it won't slow you down when you're on the way up.

Arva Ovo Axe Shovel Review:


This has been my go-to shovel for a couple years. For 2013-14 the shovel handle locking mechanism/handle was re-enforced. Its the small details that make a great shovel and this has it, with a ergonomic handle and shaft that allows for good chopping and shoveling, rigid serrated blade with foot cleats, and it breaks down small and converts to hoe mode as well.
