This is the Crovel – the spade-thing that I couldn’t find a couple of weeks ago when I was writing my post about the Chinese Military Shovel. I kept googling for things like “zombie shovel” and “zombie weapon” but it didn’t come up – come ON guys, in a Zombie Apocalypse you’d miss out on a huge amount of search traffic and lucrative sales.
Anyway. The Crovel is basically a folding shovel with a serrated edge, a pickaxe/hammer handle. You can’t actually buy the original version any more, but the upgrade seems to be the same, with the addition of a hollow handle for storing stuff in.
I suppose this is geared towards pure zombie killing, and it’s cool in its simplicity, but it just has less survival uses than the Chinese Shovel
You *can* get some fancy new versions and accessories, like a chrome-finish Crovel, or one that comes with a protective cover for the spade section. There’s also a spike attachment for extra bloodshed and spatter, presumably.
Being one of those pesky web people, I have one major criticism about the Crovel – the ecommerce site selling them – gearupcenter.com – is terrible.
Look – that is an actual life-size picture from the website of all the Crovel features >> Can you read it? I can’t, and that’s the blown-up version. It took me about four clicks to get there and I can’t even read what it does. It might have loads of super awesome features that would make it way better than the Chinese Military Shovel but without a magnifying glass we’ll never know.
