The Gerber 30-000075 E-Tool with Serrated Blade is a sturdy and durable folding spade constructed from high-quality and reliable materials. With a serrated edge on half the blade to give you extra digging power, this entrenching tool folds small for easy transport and unfolds to 2 feet for use in the garden, outdoors, hunting, or on the job.Durable Construction for Heavy-Duty Use
Crafted with a powder coated boron carbon steel spade, the Gerber E-Tool can withstand extensive use in a variety of environments. The virtually indestructible glass-filled nylon handle features an open design, giving you room for a firm grip and increased leverage. The anodized 7075 aluminum shaft also gives this entrenching tool strength and durability.
Compact and Lightweight for Easy Portability
At just over 2 pounds and measuring 9.37 inches in length when closed, the Gerber E-Tool is easy to pack in to campgrounds or hunting sites, take to work, or store in your shop or shed. Its small size also works well in compact spaces where a regular size shovel won’t fit.
Serrated Edge Adds Functionality
One side of the spade is serrated to give you extra power when digging in tough environments. Use it to saw through grass, plants, and undergrowth or for cutting into ice or hard dirt. The shape of the blade also helps this Gerber E-Tool enter the ground more easily.
Locks Open for Added Stability
A locking mechanism will keep the Gerber E-Tool open when in use, helping keep you safe and protected when you apply pressure during shoveling. Simply turn the ridged knob that wraps around the shaft to secure the E-Tool in the open position.
About Gerber: A History of Innovation
Savvy. Moxie. Craftsmanship. Attention to detail. These are just a few of the company traits that have contributed to Gerber’s emergence as a world leader in outdoor gear. Joseph Gerber started Portland, Oregon’s Gerber Advertising back in 1910, and one Christmas, he hired a local knife-maker to craft 25 sets of kitchen cutlery as client gifts. The knives were so popular Mr. Gerber ultimately left his agency to launch Gerber Legendary Blades in 1939.
It makes sense, really. An idea man gets the idea of a lifetime and turns it into a major outdoor brand–one that commands respect among knife lovers and knife makers alike. And now that same high regard is spreading in new directions, in the form of many outstanding products such as tools, personal L.E.D. lighting, and more.
