The Deuce #1 UUL Trowel is for weight fanatics only, users who learn the ins and outs of their gear and work with it to get the most out of it. Made from aerospace-grade aluminium this takes trowels to the next level!

TheTentLab says:

The Deuce #1 is an updated version of our Limited Edition Deuce from last year. So we know that, for the right customer, the Deuce #1 is a satisfying and capable tool. It's imperative that only those willing to learn the ins and outs of this product are encouraged to buy it.

What are these Ins and Outs of which we speak? Two things really: using it handle-down to break up hard soil and scooping & prying with it the strong way - levering against the spine (logo side), not the other way.

TheTentLab's Deuce #1 UUL Trowel isn't for everyone. It’s made of thinner material than a regular Deuce and it’s very slightly smaller. That's why it weighs 25% less — guaranteed to weigh no more than 12.8 grams.

Since it’s made out of thinner material, the owner must be the kind of person who learns the ins and outs of their gear and works with it to get the most out of it. For that reason we are calling it FOR FANATICS ONLY. In this case that means they’re committing to using it handle-down regularly and being just a little careful to not over-flex the handle the wrong way. In return they get a mind-bogglingly lightweight piece of gear that is in a class by itself.

Sitting Pretty!

Why spend this much on a ‘cat trowel’? Well, apart from it being an exceptionally good looking s**** pit shovel, at a level of bling that exceeds much of my trip gear, and being so light you could forget it was in your cuben wash bag, it does a pretty good job of actually digging in the ground! Provided that the ground isn’t frozen or rock hard, it does a much better digging job than a tent peg (despite the slight flex of the ultralight metal) and for that matter, I have used it as an emergency tent peg in a snow anchor fashion, to storm-lash my DD hammock tarp in soft ground, while on a solo canoe trip down the River Wye. I love this little shiny bit of kit!
