The Ortovox Beast Saw shovel is an all round dependable shovel with an intergrated saw. The pack-friendly blade has high side walls and a robust center ridge, giving it outstanding rigidity. A slightly scooped blade is great for maximum shoveling capacity and compacts down to fit inside your pack nicely. The grip permits a wide range of gripping positions for both right and left-handed users. The saw is stored inside the telescopic shaft and is useful for cutting wood, snow, or for building an igloo or snow profile. Rubber coating on the lower section maximizes grip while the quick-lock makes assembly of shaft and blade easy.
