Revolutionary Tool Lets You Dig Through Roots and Rocks Until You Hit Water.

CRKT® is releasing the Trencher™ tactical spade. This entrenching tool is the perfect blend of ergonomics, aerodynamics, and good old-fashioned grit and determination.

A unique three position heavy-duty shovel head features an aggressive and sharp wood saw on one side and a beveled edge for cutting roots and chopping wood on the other side. Now when you dig that hole and encounter a tree you can say, “What else you got?” A reinforced steel tip on the shovelhead subjects rocks to the same fate as you pick them out of the way.

The ergonomic handle feels like it was practically made for your hand, no matter how you use your Trencher™. But if you look at it a little closer, you’ll find there’s also a wire cutter built right into the textured grip that runs the full length of the handle. This beast of a survival shovel isn’t going anywhere when it encounters the elements.

The inspiration for the design came from having experienced too many shovel failures during usage. The result is an unstoppable tool that can work on anything from off-road excursions to missions in the field of operations.

When something goes wrong on a mission, cut, saw, pick, and dig your way out of it with the Trencher™.

The Trencher™ tactical spade manufacturer’s suggested retail price is $99.99
