The Black Hills Designs SHOVE-R shove knife is the hyper minimalist entry tool designed to be with you when you need it. With a pragmatic lightweight design, the SHOVE-R clocks in at between 0.12oz and 0.3oz depending on your configuration. With a thickness of 1.4mm and a width of 8mm, the SHOVE-R is one of the thinnest entry tools you can carry. This excellent balance of size and weight creates a tool that you can stash within your gear or kit and simply forget. The shove knife will fit and retain easily within a row of MOLLE or under the insole of a shoe. The possibilities are endless, and it makes for a great EDC tool that enables you to have a method of entry or egress with you at all times. Traditionally, a shove knife is made out of metal and presents a long, rigid item to conceal with a width measured in inches; the objective of the SHOVE-R is to make sure that you are equipped at all times.

SHOVE-R Key Features:
-The SHOVE-R can be configured by the end user in a minimalist or saw-equipped configuration to provide the optimal balance between functionality and concealment.
–Minimalist configuration: Out of the box, your SHOVE-R will be in a minimalist configuration and weigh 0.12oz while being only 1.4mm thick. This configuration is ideal for concealment and has no magnetic or xray signature with a very minimal “pat down” signature. You will always have your SHOVE-R with you regardless of where you are.
–Saw-equipped configuration: By taking a standard hacksaw blade (not included) and cutting it in half you can produce a short section of hacksaw blade that can be secured to the shove knife body with the included hardware. Once secured the hacksaw blade allows you a quick way to cut lock hasps, chains or other thin metal or wood you may come across. Weight: 0.3oz
