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.

How to grip it:

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.

This method creates a great leave-no-trace top plug for your hole when you're done.

**** Once you get used to using the Deuce's handle this way, you'll find yourself flipping it rightside-up and upside-down all the time as you make your hole deeper. It's really very effective. ****

Just mind which direction you apply force:

The Deuce's strength comes from its curved 'U' shape. Levering and scooping by bracing against the bottom of the 'U' shape, the Deuce® is amazingly strong and tough. BUT if you pry by bracing the Deuce against the open side of the 'U', it's much less strong. So please avoid using it that way.
