The Deuce of Spades weighs barely over one tablespoon of water, At .60 oz. it is a revolutionary backcountry latrine trowel. It can be used handle up or down. It is a nice balance between crazy-lightweight and overall toughness. Unique design quadruples the force for hard ground. Ridiculously tough 7075-T6 aluminum. Lifetime guarantee, but don't use it to pry bricks out of a wall, or large rocks out of the ground, because if you try hard enough you can actually bend it.
