Genuine Soviet army field spades! Even Soviet Union did not manage to ruin a simple shovel, so these are near indestructible but still easy to repair if necessary.
Length just a tad over 60 cm (24,4"), weight about one kilogram (about 2,2 lbs). Constructed in a simple manner: the thick wooden shaft is just stuffed into its slot and fastened with some screws. In the very unlikely case of the shaft breaking, open the screws, pull the broken bit out, carve a new shaft, stick it in and clamp it back on.
We've seen crappier spades definitely, and these have that historical look to them. Combine that with the relatively low collectible value (at least now) and you have a versatile, usable piece for re-enacting too.
This is essentially the same article as Cold Steel's "Spetsnaz" shovel, but the real deal Soviet item. Also, these of course aren't sharpened for your throwing showoffs. Of course nothing's stopping you from sharpening it.
Curiously these are unissued. Either they have been found from some old Soviet base in Europe, or someone went through a lot of trouble to get them out of Russia.
Availability: Now we got some. Tomorrow we may have none.
