I bought 5 of these, (not from this amazon supplier but from a reputable online knife store) hoping to get something better than StanSport, Coghlans or 'Random Chinese Brand X' ... But I got 5 REDICULOUS PIECES OF COMPLETE CRAP!

Looks like SOG found a supplier to make them even CHEAPER than StanSport, Coghlans or TexSport and just spray painted their name on it (which scrapes off easily with your fingernail btw).

1. I CAN FLEX AND BEND THE BLADE WITH MY BARE HANDS! No kidding. Hardened steel... my (insert curse here). If its hardened, it didn't work. They say its serrated for slashing and cutting, what a joke. The serrations are stamped and the tips are rounded. You couldn't even scratch your back with this thing.

2. The shovel DOESN'T EVEN LOCK OUT STRAIGHT!! What kind of crap is that! Literally looks like a hockey stick when its fully extended and locked. Even if you tighten it as hard as you can, if you don't dig with it just at the correct angle, it folds up and crushes your hand.

If you plan on using it as a sanitation tool, (e.g. bathroom trench and seat) you'll end up in your own excrement. You CANNOT SIT OR PUT WEIGHT ON THE HANDLE OR THE SHOVEL WILL FOLD AND YOU'LL END UP ON YOUR ***.

The main problem is that the washer thats pushed up to the shovel and pick supports by the screw lock is made of *soft* metal. When you lock it in place with the screw lock, you can make the shovel fold because the washer bends *easily*. It allows you to wiggle the shovel around, so digging with this thing after a couple scoops is like digging with a mud flap. Also, the support that's pinned to the shovel blade is made of soft metal that deforms when any pressure is appplied to it.

The previous reviewers are right on, and I can tell this was a waste of money.

The shovel will not lock and has all of the earmarks of cheaply made, mass-produced, no-QC-in-sight BS. Lame. I had hoped to take this out on the trail, but it looks like it's going to Goodwill. Not even worth returning.

I bought this a an additional camping tool but found out fast that it couldn't even get through top soil without bending. Now it sits in my kid's box of beach toys.

Ive been searching around for an Etool and on my way back from vacation I stopped in a local gun store I found en route to home. I picked this up for MSRP, boxed in its factory packaging. threw it in the trunk and called it a day. After I was home I un boxed it, unfolded it and realized that the collar didn't lock the shovel blade in place. The collar that is supposed to screw down and lock the blade or the pick in position doesn't screw all the way down so this shovel is nothing more than a SOG labeled paperweight. Very disappointed in SOG

First time I tried using it the blade folded right in half. If that's not bad enough, when I tried to contact SOG customer support they ignored every attempt to contact them.

Awful product. Awful company. Awful deal. Save your money.

After losing my Glock Entrenching Tool I needed a replacement. I saw one of these on sale online and figured since I have had good SOG products in the past this would be a good buy. That couldn't have been further from the truth. When it arrived in the box I noticed a distinct spray paint odor coming from it. I got it out of the packaging and realized that the spray paint finish on this tool was only the beginning. The back of the shovel appears to have surface rust that has been spray painted over. The shovel is attached to the handle with a very flimsy bolt. Nothing on the tool fits together well, the serrated edge is a joke, the shovel head is riveted crooked onto the piece that attaches to the handle, the bends on the top are uneven from one side to the other and I would be nervous about putting any digging pressure on it what so ever. It would cost me more to send it back than what it's worth so I figure I will give it to someone I don't like.

I recently purchased this item from an outfitter store, and i was lucky enough that they allowed me to return this item. One day while weeding the area around my patio i decided to see how it works. While attempting the dig up the roots of a weed the shovel bent. How is this suppose to be an entrenching tool when it cant even withstand digging up a small patch of dirt. I am rather disappointed in SOG for making such a useless tool. Don't buy this unless you want to waste your money
