The multi-use United Colombian Field Survival Shovel can be used as an axe, throwing knife, shovel or saw. It is a great addition to your camping gear or bug-out bag because its a tool you can count on when you need it most! It features an 8 1/2x5 1/2 1065 carbon steel saw-back blade with a black, non-reflective coating and a silver edge. The wide, flat design of the point of the blade makes it a great digging tool. The sturdy, textured handle is constructed of G10 and is paracord-wrapped for a secure grip when throwing it or using it. The blade is housed in a nylon sheath with belt loops. It is 17 in overall length.
