Hoffman Richter TITAN- The world’s First Survival Shovel?



When it comes to survival tools and gear, most of us immediately think of knives, guns, firestarters, water filters, and backpacks but… have you ever thought of a “survival shovel?”

I'm not talking about your everyday trowel or garden spade… Tools like this have been in use by the strongest military forces for centuries!

In fact, entrenching tools were so important that Julius Caesar himself wrote about the tactical advantage they provided on the battlefield!

Napoleon used Entrenching tools and pick axes as a major part of his battle tactics.

Beginning in 1870, the U.S. Army began supplying our troops with an E-tool to be used as both an entrenching tool and a weapon.

The shovel saw a massive resurgence in usefulness during the trench warfare of WWI and WWII with nearly every military force issuing them to their troops! Without these incredibly effective tools… we may well have lost many more of our soldiers.

But even with thousands of years worth of battlefield experience behind it… there was still a HUGE problem with these tools.

They were bulky and really only served a single purpose…until NOW!

The TITAN isn't your ordinary garden spade… It has 19 unique functions in a fully customizable, compact, lightweight, tool…  The TITAN is the world's first Survival Shovel.
