The DirtSaw Deuce #2 Trowel, formerly known as The Deuce #2 Ultralight Trowel, weighs barely over one tablespoon of water. At .60 oz. it is a revolutionary backcountry latrine trowel. It can be used handle up or down. It is a nice balance between crazy-lightweight and overall toughness. Unique design quadruples the force for hard ground. The DirtSaw saws the ground with teeth that are specifically designed for dirt and two deep notches on the front edge protect recessed teeth that the customer can sharpen to slice tenacious roots. Ridiculously tough 7075-T6 aluminum, 6.8” long x 2.5” wide. Lifetime guarantee. Manufactured in the USA.

The Deuce #2 is an updated version of our ground-breaking *ahem* backpacker's trowel, The Deuce of Spades™ that many thousands of customers have enjoyed. We made three improvements:

1) Four small teeth on the leading edge of the blade to cut through small roots as you run into them at the bottom of your hole. Just the right number and size to do the job but not to interfere with digging. The teeth are also shaped to be field maintainable; you can sharpen them with a rock very easily (fine-grained river rock broken in half seems best).

2) The handle has small undulations to improve grip.

3) New directions (below). We're convinced that if you know how to use The Deuce® well, you'll be a very happy customer. If you don't see the instructions, odds are you'll like The Deuce but maybe not love it. Like a lot of backpacking gear, The Deuce® rewards those who take the time to learn its ins and outs. Take a look below. It's probably something you hadn't thought of before.

How to Use it:

• Using the handle end, cut the outline of your cathole.
• Using the scoop end, pry up the center of your cathole as one piece. Once you get used to using the Deuce's handle this way, you'll find yourself flipping it right side-up and upside-down all the time as you make your hole deeper. It's really very effective.
