If you're most people, when a firefighter shows up to extinguish a blaze on your property, your first instinct would be to thanks them -- not to hit them with a shovel. It just goes to show that 44-year-old Floridian Gregory Sean Turner is not most people. Turner was arrested earlier this week on charges of Aggravated Battery on a Firefighter with a Deadly Weapon (Shovel) and Preventing or Obstructing Extinguishment of a Fire. That's a rap sheet we'd really like to think is unique, but being that this is Florida...we just can't assume that's the case.
As the advertisement for the Crovel helpfully points out, you could shell out $550 to buy an axe, a crowbar, a shovel, a hoe, a hammer, a thingie with prongs, a knife, a cleaver, another kind of knife, a machete, a bottle opener, and a grappling hook ... or, you could just buy a Crovel for $85. Can't argue with that. The fearsome multitool's name is a combination of 'shovel' and 'crowbar,' which undersells the 13 tool functions the 10 gage steel Crovel (design patent pending) can supposedly perform.
THE EDGE: The strength and sharpness of the edge gives you the ultimate cutting, chopping, sawing surface that will keep its edge even if you lose yours. EXTRAS: The handle is 19 inches hardened goose neck crowbar with 1.5 x .75 in hammer face on the edge to add additional strength and function. 550 paracord is wrapped on the hand to add grip strength and to give you 15 ft. of life-saving material that can be used in thousands of different ways.(via CrunchGear) | Product page)
