The Deuce Scoop is the ultimate ultralight titanium “potty trowel”. It has a perfect blend of size, weight and strength. They are made from Aerospace Grade 5 Titanium which makes them super strong for their weight, they are precision cut, then they are run through a vibratory tumbler so the edges are silky smooth and lastly they are bent on a specialty made jig in three places to increase strength and optimize scooping power. The trowel measures 7″ long x 2″ wide x .75oz (22 grams). Made by Dutchware, and of course they are Made in the USA.
while not the actual lightest trowel available (some aluminium options are a few grams lighter) this has a longer and more comfortable handle and is strong and durable. I have had no problems digging in a variety of soil types including gravel and roots. while for me, its not the sort of thing I use regularly and will be in my pack 99.9% of the time, Its small and light enough that i'm willing to leave it in there with the knowledge that if I do need to use it, it will be up to the job.
