SOG Specialty Knives & Tools F08-N Entrenshing Tool is made of High Carbon Steel with a length of 18.25 inches and weight of just 24.5 ounces. A folding shovel can be an indispensable tool in today’s constantly changing environment. When you need to move sand, dirt, or snow, a shovel is the best hand tools to have. SOG's all steel constructed entrenching tool uses a tempered steel blade with teeth cut into one side for cutting and slashing. The blade can be rotated 90 degrees to reveal a pick or to be used as a hoe with the shovel blade. Rotate the blade a full 180 degrees to use the pointed end of the pick in a straight manner. The triangular handle is strong and fits comfortably in either hand. When folded, it takes up about the same space as a stack of paper plates. Before any adventure, make sure you pack this portable, lightweight, and versatile tool. The SOG F08-N Entrenching Tool comes with a limited lifetime warranty that protects against defects in manufacturing and materials. Each SOG product is created with the help of company founder and chief engineer, Spencer Frazer.

Top Customer Reviews
I have two main issues with this item:
#1- The "metal" is poor quality. The product description and package claims it is constructed of "carbon steel"... more like cheap aluminum which will bend under use. The handle is likewise poorly attached to shovel. This item will NOT function well as a shovel in anything other than sand or snow or loose dirt.
#2- The item size is NOT standard "entrenching tool" size. The "shovel" claims to be equivalent to a military entrenching tool. It is NOT! See photo comparison below. I am at fault as much as the manufacturer as they did clearly list the overall dimension of 18.25". So this is partially my bad for failing to notice this.
Lastly this is just a poorly made product which will function as a shovel, but only under specific circumstances. Perhaps it is intended for the backpacking community. But it fails as an emergency shovel or entrenching tool!
Pictured below is the SOG shovel set next to a regular size "entrenching tool" shovel.
I plan to use it for backpacking and camping trips to dig and bury small fire pits and latrines or to dig for roots and vegetables. When fully extended, the shovel and/or pick locks firmly into place with a hand-screwed locking ring which I can see loosening slightly after some use and may require re-tightening. The serrated edge is not sharp at all when compared to the SOG 18" Machete MC02-N which is extremely sharp, so I don't plan to saw through any thick branches or logs. The nylon carrying pouch is very basic, single stitched, and doesn't look like it take much abuse, but it serves its purpose.
Overall, I think this is a good quality tool for the price. Will update my review after a few uses.
