I wanted a small shovel that was not a folder, the folders come apart under the stress I put them through. The special forces shovel is a very durable and reliable unit, not only does it dig but it chops and cuts as well. You will also sleep better with this thing under your pillow, if it had a bottle opener cut into its side it would be perfect. A must have.
Haven't had a chance to use this much but I did do a bit of chopping and it was pretty impressive. This will be a very usefull piece of camping gear.
Solid steel Handle well fastened Nicely shaped handle and the rounded end sits nicely in the hand Holds sharpening properly
Shovel is small enough to not take up much room but large enough to use.
I purchased the shovel so I could dig burdock roots, but I did not realize the blade was not long enough to really do the job. It is entirely my own fault that I cannot do what I intended to do with the shovel. It is very well made and a pleasure to own, perhaps I can find a use for it.
