I was never a fan of the field knife, but yeah a bit spookey :D

A cold steel spetznaz shovel is on the ever increasing 08 shopping list ::), but there very pricey for what they are on these shore's, and I'm not sure who the postage would be from the US ???



have u seen finnish army issue shovels,the old or the new from fiskars/gerber.

or swedish ones?


im using the finnish ones.

How is that size wise as I am looking for a shovel for back packing and had just about made up my mind to order an entrenching tool from Tim until I saw yours  :D

I have two WWII US army issue ones, and a Swiss one that I bought from felinevet.  I've abused one of the US ones for over 20 years and it is still very strong.  The Swiss ones are amazing though--extremely rugged with strengthening ribs on the blade, thick joint with six rivets and saddle leather sheath.

Well as far as shovel's go, the one I always use, when back packing, or going anywhere for an extented period is my Glock Shovel, I have no idea if there still in production any more, but I know they were made for the Austrian army in the 1990's :)

It's very well made and uses a lot of relatively high tech materials (plastics and polymers), the shovel head is slightly bigger and deeper than the US army equivalent, and because of the polymer shaft and alloy head you can dig for quite long periods without fatigue because the shaft damps out alot of the shock and vibration :), the edge's are beveled (not sharpened) so it can be used as a resonable effecient hatchet.

It can be used as a convetional shovel or rotate the head through 90 degrees and use it as a mattock, or pick :)

The the handle is tellescopic so you can use it in confined spaces or as a hand trowl, or extend it fully so you've got more leverage/power, the butt/pommel is nicely rounded so it doesn't chew your hands to bits either :)

But one of the best features is the screw off pommel the conceals a very effective wood saw and combo tool!
Just what every multinut needs :)

hey Micky,how much do those glock´s cost there?

here only one shop has them anymore,and they take 49 euros for it:

I really don't like a folding head on a shovel... I'd consider it worth the extra bulk to have a solid, fixed shovel like the Cold Steel SPETZNAZ shovel.

Do you say that because you feel that the joint is a weak link?  I can't imagine what I would have to do to break the joint on either the Swiss or US entrenching tools I have.  In my experience, the handle or blade would give long before the joint.  It's a plus to be able to lock the joint with the blade at 90 degrees from the handle also.

well each individual likes different strokes.

i like if the shovel is somewhat compact to carry,and can be used as pick when its folded 90 degrees.

but ie. Finnish older model army shovel is folding type but its still quite long,it wont fit into battle belt or in any chest rigs,but with few straps it goes easily in top of rucksack.

Long enough for my memory of it to have expired, I suppose (which isn't saying much)!  :think:
