Anything that goes in the vehicle needs to be compact IMO. Space is at a premium. I have German army folding shovels in all the vehicles. Wives suv even has one stashed in w/ the spare wheel in case she ever gets stuck in the snow (or wants to dig at the beach.) I also stashed a french army wool blanket in there for her. I'm not specific to country, just got a good deal on a bunch of the Bundeswehr ones. Many types are usable in a 'hoe' config and not just as a shovel. Can't beat the price vs quality of real mil-surp stuff.
I guess a lot is what you need it for. My uses are digging a small hole to poop in or dig out a stuck vehicle = not very often. I have a tomahawk in the van (95% used for pounding in tent stakes vs actually cutting wood.) so I've never even used the shovels serrated edge. If I needed a shovel on a more regular basis I'd want something better/longer. Whats your use case?
The Anvil wood handle compact shovel is made of a high-quality carbon steel and is ideal for camping and gardening. They are also great for digging and gardening in tight spaces. This is the ideal utility
