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. A specially made cordura sheath is available separately. The sheath features an extra wide belt loop.
To keep your shovel edge in tip-top condition we recommend "The Puck"
from Lansky Sharpeners.
