We have been inspecting and selling military surplus for years, and this is the best tool we have found. Vintage Swiss military shovel features a rugged leather cover, sturdy wooden handle, and a super quality steel blade so stout it can be sharpened into a hatchet. The stitched and riveted classic leather cover is Swiss marked and includes belt and pack carriers. We have handled mountains of military surplus and this shovel is the most rugged, durable, and practical piece of field gear we have seen. Measures 24" extended and 17" folded. Used in good condition, and very limited supplies.
