Multifunctional field tool is so much more than mere "shovel"Head cast from tempered stainless steelBlack oxide coating boosts corrosion resistanceUltratough glass-fiber-reinforced nylon handleSharpened edges for chopping, sawing, moreIncludes custom nylon sheathOverall length: 16 1/4"
M48 is proud to offer the ultimate tactical shovel - a multitalented field tool that cuts, chops, saws, digs and even fends off attackers! Built to withstand vigorous use in punishing conditions, it features a cast stainless steel head - tempered for strength and flexibility and black oxide coated for exceptional corrosion resistance. Each edge is uniquely shaped and sharpened for maximum cutting versatility; concave beveling on one side yields potent chopping power, while serrations on the opposite edge make quick work of sawing jobs. The edges converge to a form a bitter, penetrating point. Like the head, the Tactical Shovel's handle is virtually indestructible, made of advanced glass-fiber-reinforced nylon. Perfect for camping and other outdoor activities, light chopping or even emergency self-defense!

Bought this for a backpacking trip, and I'm glad i did. Its light but still has heft to it so it chops great. My only complaint is that the handle is a tad uncomfortable, but I fixed that with some paracord
As a shovel, this is a fine specimen. Its sharp point easily cuts through dirt and the serration tears up tough roots, a problem I have dealt with many a time. It is very sturdy and I would not doubt it has very good potential as a self defense tool. My only complaint is the small protrusions in the middle of the handle make it impossible to choke up on the handle without letting go. Other than that, I am very happy to own this fine product and my compliments go to United Cutlery for its creation.
For the money, this is a great tool to have in your collection. It's built solid, but still light weight enough for backpacking. This is a shovel, an ax, a saw, and, best of all, a pretty formidable weapon for close quarters hand to hand, or fending off pesky predators. All this for only $40 makes it my best buy.
not a bad product at all feels nice and heavy I use for metal detecting and camping as well I definitely recommend this
this thing is very cool but very small as well..
This is a great product like many that I have received from BudK. I have beat the crap out of this thing against trees and dug surprisingly deep holes in a matter of minutes. This shovel is amazing and I strapped right next to my M48 Tomahawk on my Tactical Bug Out bag.
One of the best purchases I have made for my Bug Out Bag, hands down! The only way to describe this shovel would be BAD A$$. The compact size is perfect and it seems like it is very durable and could handle a lot.
Holy crap this shovel is awesome all though the handle could be a little longer bud other than that its cool but my sister is afraid of it(not a bad thing).
I got this today and went out and dug up frozen ground like nothing I would highly recommend this to a friend
The head is smaller then i thought but it looks mean and came sharp love it.
You can kill critters with it and you can bury critters with it!
After watching the video I think they should have named it The Gallagher. I'm going to by two of these one for me and one for my brothers Christmas present.
I really love the feel and grip. I'm also happy that it doesn't collapse like most survival shovels do, so I don't have to worry about it doing so by accident. You can chop down small branches with it too! It's a must have!
it came out just as promised although i imagined it bigger but overall very work the buy it was shipped very fast and came pretty sharp
This weapon I like a lot, it has a very good feel to it as well as great grip. I've ordered a shovel before that wasn't too great but this 1 is better. The blade itself is a bit smaller then I'd like but to me it feel like I'm swinging a smaller axe. This weapon hits very hard which so what I like most.
Everything I thought it was going to be & more. Great for digging & self defense use!!
GREAT SHOVEL TO WORK AROUND THE HOUSE. USED IT IN THE FLOWER BEDS AND WAS HANDIER THAN A REGULAR SHOVEL. USED IT AT THE HUNTING CAMP AND CLEARED SEVERAL FIRING LANES. RECOMMEND TO ALL FOR GREAT ALL-AROUND WORK TOOL.
It is good quality, but my true Army Issue trifold shovel is the size you want to be functional in a real world survival situation. The trifold chops much faster, digs much faster, the case is rubber with snaps and is ALICE and MOLLE compatible. Its just heavier thats my only complaint. The M 48 is nice to have around for playing around but its not on my pack. If you can get an original goverment issue like mine, get it. if you cant this is much better then the Glock shovel and the cheaper immitation trifold shovels out there.
i like this shovel/knife.The shovel came in sharp as a razor and digs very well.
This is a great product. Light weight but still heavy duty. Great for a hiking bag. I own most of the M48 gear and have been very impressed. When used within it's means, this is one versatile tool. No hiking bag would be complete with out it.
