The main head incorporates both a standard sharp edge and a serrated saw edge which is ideal for clearing brush and roots away before digging. These same edges transform this small shovel into a deadly close quarters weapon, similar to an axe or other chopping weapon.
Additionally, a spare dual edged knife/saw is deployed from the rear of spade handle. This knife is very handy for smaller survival and camp-craft tasks. And finally the quality ABS plastics sheath protects the main head from the elements and connects securely to a belt or other MOLLE attachment point.
The shovel’s main head is constructed from high quality carbon tool steel, and the handle from impact and weather resilient nylon. This army shovel will not break easily and will survive a long field service life.
