The Special Forces Shovel is modeled after the original Soviet Spetsnaz shovel. The Spetsnaz were the Soviet army's most elite unit, renowned for their deadly efficiency. Trained to travel light, the Spetsnaz packed only the bare essentials. This included a unique shovel which had a broad flat blade and 3 sharp versatile edges. Cold Steel's shovel follows the Soviet design as faithfully as possible with newer improvements in the steel (twice as thick as the original) and heat treatment.

Specifications and features:
19-11/16" long
5/64" thick
6" wide
Heat-treated medium-carbon stainless steel
Sharpened edges
Hardwood handle
26.6 oz.

"Our whole troop is convinced, don't go camping without one of these. Every hole we dig starts with this shovel (some are finished with post hole diggers due to depth) and most finish with it. It has become our favorite hatchet for chopping firewood and you just can't believe how much fun it is throwing this thing at stumps, deadfalls, etc. The only way to improve it is to get the cover from Cold Steel. Cold Steel also sells replacement handles that are quite inexpensive, not that you'll need one for this shovel, eveything about this is tough as nails, but I've got some other projects (2 handed stainless machete) in the works that could use a super tough handle."

"I have bought many shovels before and by far this one is the best. I seen on the military channel that the russian elit army uses this shovel. And they said the shovel can be turned a sertain way and it will deflect bullets. But anyway this is a great buy!!"

"Pretty cool shovel. Chops light wood well and is fun to throw at stuff. Edges are Sharp! I managed to snap the handle off after 2 camping trips. However, I am the type of person who is very hard on equipment. Makes for a good Shivel. I might buy another."

"The handle on this shovel breaks too easily. After about two dozen throws into soft deadwood, the handle broke in two places, renering the shovel useless. The steel and the concept of this shovel is very good, but until Cold Steel switches to a stronger handle, this item isn't suited one bit for camping or survival situations. I'll have a woodworker make a hickory handle for mine."

"I'm very satisfied with the qulity of this shovel, I sharpined the edges to a razor sharp edge it slices through paper with ease, I threw It several times at a oak wood stump, and buried it 5 inch's into it, severl times, I have refinished my handle with a few layers of kevlar and after milling the shank down and set the screws in epoxy refinished the whole shoval in a flectar camo, its awesome. Its far better quility then other military shovels i'v seen."

"I bought this shovel and ill tell you it is nice.The side of the metal shovel and the tip are sharpened. It is heavy enough to take some damage but it you hit a lot of rocks you will dull it out. No problem just get a sharpening stone."

"This is a really nice shovel. The ends are sharp enough to use it as a hatchet. The handle isn't as hard as hickory but still hard enough."

"I love this thing. It's not just a shovel, it a shovel, hatchet, machete, and a knife. Recently, I went to build a wilderness shelter and I dropped about six 4 inch round pine trees and it took only about 1 to 2 minutes a tree. It stripped all the branches off them like a pro. What was kind of ironic was that the last thing I would use it as is a shovel just because it ruins the edge on the shovel. Butn with this thing and some 550 cord, I built a shelter and dug a fire pit, and just to humor myself I started a fire with this and a flint. It does everything, so just buy it."

"Nice shovel. Ordered fri got it wed. Cold Steel makes good knifes but even better shovels. Sharp on all sides, nice thick paint, sweet hardwood handle all around good product. Can be used as throwing shovel or axe and also some good videos on youtube on how to fight with this model shovel. Worth every penny."

"I have had this shovel for 2 years now this thing is a very useful tool it can chop small trees.and also digs very well! We use it hiking and around the yard for planting. I'm actually thinking of buying another just because I like it so much! Its worth the price!only thing it could use is molle attachments on the case."
