It is truly incredible how an everyday object can hold so much history. This type of shovel commonly used as a melee weapon all the way back in WW1. Our troops would use it to build ?fortifications and latrines. In WWII the design was then elevated by making the shovel fold to help it be compact and easy to store and travel.
A folding shovel can be an indispensable tool in todayâ€™s constantly changing environment. The high carbon steel construction entrenching tool uses a tempered steel blade with teeth cut into it for cutting and slashing. The triangular handle is strong and fits the hand well. The black powder coat is durable and gives it a clean, classic finish.
