It’s a shovel for digging, right? Yes, but it’s so much more, too. It can be used as a hoe, and the blade on one side can be used for chopping stuff. The serrated side of this GI shovel can be used for sawing or cutting through roots. Now, don’t try this at home, but in the military, this shovel can be used for close-quarters combat. We’re talking lethal weapons! At least, that’s how it was used during the Second World War between the German and Soviet soldiers. Lots of self-defense use and not much digging. 

The GI Vietnam era tool carrier and the GI e- tool trench shovel are used, although they are in very good condition, they might still show signs of moderate wear and age.

Exactly what was described

Got the shovel and cover and the cover looks new unissued or extremely well taken care of, shovel is the same, used and repainted but very well taken care of and functions flawlessly. Don't be afraid of ordering the used option
