Designed for emergency, rescue, camp, survival first responders and demanding utility applications – the MPS-1 is one bad*ss tool. We’ve put this shovel to the test, chopping sagebrush and banging against rocks in the desert, sawing through roots to dig fire pits in the forest, and hammering down stakes into rocky mountain ground. This shovel takes the abuse in stride.




This shovel means business. Light weight and strong. When space is tight it’s great to have a tool that is multi-functional.I love that you could use the handle as an emergency hammer. You are not ready for the Zombie Apocalypse until you have one of these.

The MPS-1 shovel is a true man's man tool that is compact, sturdy, versatile, with a crazy ton of uses! Definitely comes in handy when camping without taking up a ton of space in an already packed trunk and has proven itself in a couple landscaping projects around the house. Love this tool!

I found the MPS-2 to be a great all around tool.  The feel is somewhere between classic muscle car strength and technical NASA crafted precision tool.  The size is perfect for storing between seats in my truck and this thing is tough as nails.  I consider myself to be a collector of great tools and as a retired law enforcement member, I would recommend the MPS-2 to anyone who is serious about great performance apparatuses.

I finally got a chance to wrap my hands around the MPS-1 from Shelterwerks.  Proud to say it's made in the USA!  

It's an all aluminum construction weighs in at only 3lbs, very well balanced and feels great in your hands.  The V nose blade is designed for ultimate  penetration.  It also has a serrated edge for chopping and sawing.  The MPS-1 would fit right in your arsenal of Overland / Recovery gear!
