This is Cold Steel’s upgrade to the Spetsnaz E-tool (shovel). Sobert Gummer says: “Get one, you’ll find a hundred uses for it. But be sure to get the optional cordura sheath for it, too– you’ll thank me, later.”

Most telling review: “Excellent product, made of top-notch material. It works great for chopping and digging, works ok for slicing/cutting and bushwhacking. Basically an excellent camping tool, or shovel/hatchet replacement in any limited-weight situation (e.g. survival). The steel is remarkably durable, I usually dig in gravely areas, but the shovel hasn’t lost it’s edge yet. The handle can be a bit slippery, but nothing you can’t fix with a tape and paracord handle-wrap or a lanyard (drill a hole through the back, loop some cord through, tie it off).”

Product Description

The Special Forces Shovel is modeled after the original Soviet Spetznaz shovel. The Spetznaz soldiers made up the most elite unit in the Soviet Army. The U.S. equivalent would be our Green Berets. The shovel head and socket are forged from medium carbon steel, then heat treated for maximum strength. The edges come sharpened to a utility/axe edge that can easily be improved to razor sharpness.
