Our line up of Tark Trowels are the lightest, highest performing products designed for digging catholes while in the backcountry.
For those interested in the highest performing, most comfortable, ultralight and user friendly trowel, the Titanium Hybrid is the way to go. The blade and body is grade 5 titanium, thin, and extremely stiff for cutting through tough ground and roots, while the perimeter of the handle encompasses a thick, dual stacked ridge of beautifully anodized aluminum to protect your hand. A number of cut-outs along the body and edges allow you to use it in many different ways such a a tent stake, dead man anchor, and even lash a stick to it to use as an extended handle.
Hybrid Titanium: 2″ Wide x 7″ Long (17 grams)
For those interested in the absolute lightest, strongest trowel on the market, the full Titanium is what you want. Ultra-stiff, ultralight, made of a single piece of grade 5 titanium, formed in the vertical direction for rigidity. The digging end of the Tark Trowel has serrated edges to cut through the earth and the contoured handle allows increased positive grip during use. The full rounded bent tabs at each side protect your hand from carnage during aggressive cathole excavation. The entire trowel is processed to dull and round the edges, for a comfortable feel in your hand, but due to the thin nature of the material itself, some people do find it beneficial to use a glove or bandana around the handle.
Small Titanium: 2.25″ Wide x 7″ Long (13 grams)
Large Titanium: 2.5″ Wide x 8.5″ Long (20 grams)
