Chinese Military Shovel

Anyone seen this? I've tried to find a decent source for this item but unsuccessful. Ebay has them for $70.00 + so am still looking. If you find a decent source, please share. Thanks-

Pap

Look up Sportsman guide in the military section. They have a good assortment that might fit your needs

American Manufacture

Now if Alco could make that out of aluminum, and include a flag pole holder, it would be great!

That bottle opener on the edge is a nice touch...I like to pop open an ice cold Pacifico when I'm out digging a trench - problem solved!

I got this little shorty shovel at Lowe's for $10. I prefer the Lowe's shovel to an old Army entrenching tool that's around here somewhere -- it's lighter and not much longer. An entrenching tool isn't a good shovel, which I could imagine needing in an emergency. And the folding capability isn't very helpful unless you back pack. Hope I never have to use either one. Shop Ames True Temper 10-3/4" Professional Wood Handle Cub Shovel at Lowes.com

Ok, that video was inadvertently hilarious, but the shovel was indeed pretty cool. Now I'm going to lie awake at night worried we are about to be overrun by the Chinese Army with their incredible shovels!

However, a little folding multi tool shovel like that would be a pretty nice addition to the toolbox. You can't tell me the US Army doesn't have something just as cool?!Tell me we haven't fallen behind in the shovel arms race!

When it comes to shovels, the US Military is years behind, IMHO. Most all of the military folding shovels world wide have one edge sharpened and some have a pick, but none that I have found have all of the tools that this new Chinese Military shovel have. I have checked all of the Google listed Army-Navy surplus web sites and no one has this new item. The only place I see it listed is on Ebay at from $69 up and all shipped from China at $30 shipping. No thanks, I can wait, but still a cool item.

get one from a army surplus store and sharpen it on both sides, that will work.

Folding shovels like this are "cool" and work OK if you don't have space for a larger shovel, but for any serious work such as digging out a stuck vehicle, etc, give me a full size D-handle shovel any day. Much easier to use. I keep one in all of our vehicles (except the wife's Miata!).
