Ever been in a situation where you desperately needed a shovel but only remembered to pack a crowbar? Nope? Well somebody else has and figured that a multipurpose 13-in-one tool would do some good.
The Crovel combines two major tools--a crowbar and shovel--into a single 5.5-pound contraption. While the immediate crowbar-ey and shovel-ey uses of this multipurpose tool are apparent, the Crovel actually performs the functions of 11 other tools. Being writers (read: indoorsy types), we were only able to identify a couple. The shovel head, for example, has something that looks like a hand-saw built-in, while the cube-like protrusion next to the crowbar end might make a good hammer.
Although we'd probably never find a use for the Crovel ourselves, the sheer practicality of a relatively lightweight tool replacing several heavier ones is something that MacGyver types should appreciate.
