Cold Steel Spetsnaz Trench Shovel

I am a big fan of the Cold Steel Special Forces Shovel, so I was excited to see that they are bringing out a new shovel for 2020. The original Special Forces Shovel is compact enough to be carried on a pack for backcountry camping and many people use them in their vehicle kits. However, when it comes to vehicle kits, there is often room for a larger, more efficient shovel. That is where the new Spetsnaz Trench Shovel comes in.

The Spetsnaz Trench Shovel is very much like the original Special Forces Shovel but it is larger in a few key dimensions. It has a slightly larger head and a handle that is around 10″ longer. Other than that, it keeps all the other features that make the original great like the steel spade-shaped head, sharpened working edges, and durable construction.

    Haven’t they been producing this shovel for decades just with a slightly shorter handle?

      Yup… that’s the point. It’s a new version of an already great shovel.

    Love this new design, its better than the traditional yet can still be used as a weapon.

    Only one problem! The Russian’s didn’t design it! The Danes did in 1869…

      I had to look this up, you are correct Secundius. Doesnt surprise me. Historically the Russian’s inventioned very little. Pavlog’s dogs were a metaphor for the Russian people

    This might be pre-production. I went to the website to look compare it to the shorter version and only the shorter one is showing up. Now even your direct link takes me to the short version. If this is available soon, I’ll probably buy one for my and my wife’s cars.
