I was looking for a small portable shovel for kids to use for snow without serrated edge and with a D-handle. I also was looking for a usable small shovel I could put in car or take camping. The construction is solid. After being opened, the shovel is secured by large locking sleeve nut. The included storage pouch is great way to store shovel. My intended use is for light shoveling of small tasks. For me the price represents a good value between my intended use, construction and price.
It is just like the Gerber tool, except a little lighter and much cheaper in price. Great for carrying in the car for emergencies.
