    Works fine in woodland or peaty soils?
    Maybe not for mountains though

    Or at the risk of being provocative, anything "bushcraft"
    Then there's most of the Vango 'DofE approved' stuff.

    Why?:p
    Melted?! :hilarious:

    I've had mine for years. I only use it for some Dartmoor trips or local lowland stuff. Backpacking I take a blizzard stake. That's pretty rubbish for digging with too, but useful as a stake.

    Seen loads broken by the DofE youngster, one supervisor carries a metal gardening trowel for them to use.

    We issue the coghlans trowels to our Explorers on camps. Not aware any broken for the 8 years I've been helping. Maybe most don't actually use them!
    I can see they aren't too strong though. Maybe as a gardener, I've abused enough tools in my time to be aware to their limits.
