Those are soooo freaking cool. I saw that yesterday. It has been all over a bunch of sites; even Gizmodo.

I had been wanting a good camping shovel. If anyone finds a US store that sells them please post it.

OK, I guess I have officially moved into the "need to get a life" category if I just spent a whole 8 minutes and 46 seconds of a Saturday night watching a video about how cool a shovel can be  ;D

I have always wanted the Cold Steel special forces shovel, but this one may have it beat.

So I found a place online in china that sells them. Cant find one in English yet but I'm still looking. In china they sell for 698.00 Yuan witch at the current exchange rate works out to $102.00 US. That is one seriously expensive shovel.

Loved the music,but some of the language was Korean with a sprinkling of Chineses characters.  Typical for Korean advertising, will have to ask the wife when she gets home to confirm that it was Korean, she reads it a bit. 

Loved the cutting up of the potatoes, they should have cooked them and ended the video eating french fries and popping the champegn bottle open.

Looks great, but the hinge looks a little over complicated and maybe prone to failure.  I would like to get my hands on one and put it through its paces

Made in China by whom?  I don't know...that looks like serious quality.  Maybe Swiss craftsmen? :-)
