Whether you’re breaking up weeds that won’t budge or digging trenches for irrigation, this stainless steel 3-position head stays sharp and accurate through hard and soft soil. Designed with an easy twist lock to collapse the head for more compact storage, this shovel can suit any yard and fit in any shed.
The Barebones shovel design is inspired by a military entrenching tool, made popular by the Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC) in the 1930s. The Corps was set up to provide jobs for young men during the Great Depression. In its 9-year span, over 3 million people were employed to help with forest management, flood control, and various conservation and natural construction projects. This lightweight, collapsible shovel was easy to carry from site to site and was widely used by the CCC to build many of the national parks, campgrounds, and reservoirs that we enjoy today.
