Our shovels are made from precise foundry technology, made of martensitic stainless steel by 100% molding and casting. Each of the components is subjected to the abutting joint strength test and flexibility test. Thanks to independently developed “6-position shift-key” you can fold the shovel’s blade toward your expected angle in one simple step. Overall our shovels are probably the highest quality multitools on the market. A few models (F1, F2 and Metal Plate) are made of high-carbon steel and they are also great quality.
