  Best bowel trowel -since you asked

g2d, whether sincerely or facetiously; here's what we found to be the best for use in the rocky, rooty conditions in Quetico Provincial Park camp. For many years we used those plastic trowels then one year someone broke it. Not a good thing when you're on day 5 of a 9 day trip and there are 6 people sharing it. So Darryl covered the new one with fiberglass cloth and epoxy. One industrious member of our party managed to break that one too a few years later. We came on a great replacement when visiting Johnnie's Seeds of Maine: a small steel gardening trowel (blade is maybe 2 in. wide by 6 in. long). Twenty years and many cat holes later and it's in good shape. It even has a nice leather cord attached to the handle.

OP: We've used the Sven saw for years and it's held up great, with an occasional new blade. I made a case of 4-mil plastic and duct tape with a tie cord on top and keep handy tied to outside of my pack for use on portage trails with downed trees.
