    Just have to give some kudos to Cold Steel for their version of the Spetznaz shovel. I bought it on a lark but decided to play around with it in the garden one day. It is almost as good as a hatchet for going through roots and hacking branches off of bushes and trees. I like my Gerber machete but I think the blows can be focused better with the Cold Steel shovel. Haven't tried throwing it yet but I have sharpened it and it is right at home in the Jeep for whatever I might need it for. Who knows, I might even dig a hole with it one of these days... :)

    They are nice - good deal for the money. Check out this review on Amazon - probably the funniest thing I've read in a while (edited for brevity..)

    So... if something requires you to have skill before using it, then they shouldn't even make it... I hope this guy doesn't drive. Or, ride a bike. Or, leave the house.

    You should check out the glock shovel.

    When using it to gather firewood, i've been able to wedge it in a rotten tree, and jump on the handle until the wood broke free. It also chops through roots and the like with ease.

    I've used and horribly abused that shovel and besides a little finish wear, that thing is practically brand new.

    I'd put the glock up against it..

    Also, I bet that chinese e-tool has a high lead content. Not sure i'd want to be cutting my food with it. :p
