New Multi-tool Shovel Combines 13 Tools into 1

Outdoor Gear and Emergency Preparedness Company Introduces New Invention-The Crovel
Scottsdale, AZ, United States of America ( 01/04/2011

March 30, 2011 - Scottsdale, AZ- Recon LLC is the new kid on the block for outdoor gear and emergency preparedness. Not only does it sell "all things outdoors" and hard-to-find emergency products, it also produces unique American-made innovations. Its original products are conceived with the idea of empowering individuals offering multi-functional gear, making life easier.
The first product to launch is the Crovel. This multi-functional tool combines a folding shovel and a crowbar into one instrument. The Crovel also boasts other functions, such as a hammer, ax, pick, pry bar, hoe, and machete - all in one easy to use tool. By combining several tools into one, you are able to reduce excess weight of unneeded gear by approximately 45 pounds. The strength and sharpness of the Crovel's edge gives you the ultimate cutting, chopping, and sawing tool that will keep its edge -- even when you lose yours. The handle is a 19” hardened goose neck crowbar with a 1.5 x .75” hammer face on the end to add additional strength and function. 550 para cord is wrapped on the handle to add grip strength and to give you 15’ of life-saving material that can be used in thousands of different ways. All shovels are tested for strength, balance, hardness, finish and workmanship, and include a lifetime warranty.
Described as the “most awesome shovel ever", “the perfect shovel”, and “the Swiss Army Knife of shovels”, the product also boasts a "Made in the USA" label with built-in American pride and strength. Of most importance to inventor and co-founder, Tim Ralston, US-Made is the only way to go. “Millions of USA citizens have lost jobs; hundreds of companies as well as businesses have shut down, and the whole country has gone into an economic downslide. I wanted to make a small difference; manufacturing locally will not only assist local companies, it will encourage their business’ growth, and this means that they can offer more jobs to Americans,” says Tim.
