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 on 3 sides that can easily be improved to razor sharpness.
This listing is for the shovel and sheath.
A popular tool with military and special operations units worldwide, we’ve heard tell of it being used to dig foxholes and bunkers, to chop branches, build shelters, act as an improvised paddle, and even as a last-resort weapon of defense! Our Special Forces Shovel is also immensely popular with the throwing community, as its head-heavy balance and multiple sharp edges make it an excellent alternative to a Tomahawk for sport and recreational throwing!
The sheath is made of cordura and has nylon loops to allow carry from belt or pack. The Cold Steel Special Forces Shovel Sheath features black Cordura construction with snap closure and a hanging loop. This Cold Steel Sheath fits the Cold Steel Special Forces Shovel.
From a customer: The Cold Steel spetnatz shovel is perfect for keeping behind the seat of a pickup truck. You can dig your self out if a mud hole. Cut your way through brush and you can throw it and it will stick easy. Many uses with one tool that is not a knife and avoids legal entanglements.
