Cold Steel Special Forces Shovel Review

I hadn’t tried this shovel until some readers put me on to it.  I’m glad they did! As a shovel, the Cold Steel is great.  Tough as a tank, you don’t have to worry about the shovel breaking on you.  In case the handle does ever break, it is easy to replace.

Note that the product image is a bit deceiving.  The edges are a lot sharper than they appear. This makes it great for cutting through tree roots (just remember to hone the edge!).

My main complaint is that the shovel doesn’t telescope or fold.  You are stuck with the 20-inch handle, which means your back will hurt like hell from stooping over.

Pros

  • Very durable
  • Hardwood handle
  • Includes MOLLE compatible sheath

Cons

  • Doesn’t fold or telescope
  • A bit bulky for a bug out bag
  • Edges need regular sharpening
