The Gerber E-Tool Folding Spade with Pick has a built-in pick on the opposite side of the blade. The blade has a powder coated carbon steel blade with a serrated edge. With the pick deployed you can chop your way through hard soil and then lift the debris away with the shovel. The glass filled nylon handle is built for long life and durability. The E-Tool folding spade weighs a little over two pounds and folds away nicely taking up as little space as possible.
