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.
I bought it to keep in the car for camping, and took it out on a bike ride to give it a quick test run. I planned to dig a small pit like for a camp fire, then fill it in. I got as far as 12x12x8 in soft soil that I could have dug with a rock or stick. Just this little bit was enough to bend the blade of the tool, so that it was at an angle front to back. A little more digging and it started to bend left to right. I bent it back with my hands.
I tried setting it up at a 90deg angle, like a home. This worked for a bit, then it bent again. I gave up, pushed the tiny bit of dirt back in my pitiful pit, and packed it up to return.
I willbuy another one and this time not ignore the reviews in favor of a reputation.
This has me rethinking the SOG tomohawk that I had my eye on or future knives.
