These collapsible shovels are engraved with "BUND", meaning Bundeswehr - the German Armed Forces. Built to NATO specifications, this steel shovel is able to be configured in to three different forms. Fully extended, this shovel is ideal for standard digging use. The shovel head can be locked in a 90 degree position, making a mattock-like shape. This is good for vertical digging. The final configuration fully collapses the shovel in to a compact form for carrying around.
A plastic (commercial) cover is included for easy transport and storage.
The steel construction provides the strength you need while weighing a manageable 1.2kg. Two of the edges are serrated to use for cutting. The design is made for quick and easy use. To extend the shovel, simply pull out the handle and head, then twist the cylinder to lock it in place. Attach the case to a strap or belt using the 3.5cm wide loop on the rear. Pick one of these up for the collection or take it camping.

Overall it’s a good product but I wouldn’t recommend using it in sandy conditions because some grains of sand will jam the locking cylinder, making it nearly impossible to open
Great bit of kit here. Very well made. Better get one if you don't already.
