Dated 1939, this tool was issued at the onset of WWII. As used by Swiss troops to fill sandbags, shore up fortifications and more way back when. A cool collectible, with plenty of life left for hard tasks down the road.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Clifton from Snow shovelThis is not a folding shovel. The handle is removable, and is secured by a sliding collar. This its not an e-tool its a mountaineers shovel, made for snow removal and avalanche rescue. It would be great to throw in the trunk or pack on a winter camping trip. Condition is good used shape. Don't buy this if you want to dig foxholes. Do buy this if you want an emergency snow shovel or a neat WW2 era collectable

Rated 5 out of 5 by annabelle the nannybear from Great shovel for a great price!I bought one of these shovels a while back. I wanted a light weight shovel i could use for all 4 seasons. This little thing is awesome! I can break it down (remove the handle) and place both items in a large utility pouch for stowage on my rucksack or put it in my car kit when i travel. I use it for chores around the yard and the garden. Although i have the cold steel spetznaz shovel i find myself using this little gem more and more.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Divine Rapids from Some of the Good StuffI ordered one and got a second because they are very nice compact and sturdy snow shovels. One had paint like finish and the other more used one was polished aluminum. Nice usable and collectable shovel. The good stuff doesn't stay in stock for long, so get it when you can!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Chuck from Cool shovel, kinda small handle.I bought this shovel cause it was kinda cool and I saw it on a youtube video. IT is dated 1939 and I don't think it was ever used. I only wish the handle was thicker and longer. It's not even as thick as a U.S. GI shovel.
