This Mini-Folding shovel is 16 1/8" overall, but folds down to 6 3/4" in its black nylon carrying pouch. The carrying pouch has a strap for belt use. This folding shovel is of tempered tool steel construction, with non-slip rubber handle grips. The side of the shovel blade is constructed to serve as a rough saw, and a pick attachment can be rotated from the head, making this a multi-purpose tool that weighs in at 1 1/4 lb. It is small enough that no camper should go without one and it can be used for many camp tasks.
