 Comment(s)

Hey, have you heard the joke about the Spetsnaz? Of course you haven’t, no one jokes about the Spetsnaz. Because they were no joke. The Soviet-era Spetsnaz had a reputation for a no-nonsense approach to operations and their tools had to keep up. Cold Steel announces the release of one such tool, with their Spetsnaz Entrenching Shovel series.

Cold Steel Spetsnaz Entrenching Shovel

Entrenching shovels have a reputation for versatility, having been used for digging trenches/pits, clearing vegetation and building field shelters. Not to mention chopping tasks and self-defense. They have even been finding their way into recreational throwing events.

The Cold Steel Spetsnaz Entrenching Shovel series features a hardwood hickory handle for durability during hard use chores. The handle has a contoured end for support when digging, while providing retention when chopping or lifting a heavy load.

The shovel head contains 3 sharpened edges, which aid in digging and chopping branches and vegetation. The sharpened edges can also prove useful in camp if the errant predator wanders in and it is all you have in hand. The medium carbon steel provides a tough and impact-resistant shovel head for extended use and self-defense.

The overall length of the Spetsnaz Trench Shovel is 30 inches and weighs 36.3 ounces. This is a great shovel to throw into your vehicle, ATV or camper for general everyday use and aggressive digging. Whereas the Special Forces Spetsnaz Shovel is 19.68 inches and weighs a lighter 25.7 ounces. This model can be carried anywhere the Trench Shovel can, with the addition of affixing it to your backpack on a camping trip. The Special Forces Spetsnaz Shovel also makes a great addition to a bugout bag, due to its smaller, more portable size.

Whether you are carrying the Entrenching Shovel for survival, camping or just general use, the available sheath is a plus. The sheath is made of Cor-Ex and comes with an integral belt loop.

The Cold Steel Spetsnaz Entrenching Shovel series is available now with an MSRP of $25.99 or $39.99 depending on model. For more info, please visit ColdSteel.com.
