A shovel works better when sharp, and Cold Steel took it to a whole new level! Based on the entrenching tool used by the Russian military, the Special Forces Shovel does more than cut sod--it'll chop like a machete as well! Great for site clearing when camping, or for gathering wild edibles in tough, root filled soil. A versatile tool that's worth its weight in gold.
The only thing wrong with this example is a small tear in the sheath, which is mostly cosmetic.
Select the Special Grade option to have the edge brought to a finely honed and polished convex.
Overall Length: 19 and 11/16"
Steel: Medium Carbon
Sheath: Panel-Reinforced Cordura Nylon
NOTE: Due to the manner in which this shovel is packaged from the factory, it is not uncommon for there to be a very small marred spot in the paint on the socket of the shovel. Due to the intended use of this tool, we do not consider this a defect.
