Backcountry Entrenching Tool with Leather Cover

Backcountry Entrenching Tool with Leather Cover

German military extra heavy-duty entrenching tool, used to dig foxholes, combines a shovel, hoe and pick into one tool. Made of heavy gauge steel it will take a beating (unlike the fragile Tri-fold shovels and most commercial shovels). The hard-wood handle has been buffed for easy handling and weather resistance. Now you can use it to build a campfire ring, dig a latrine or work in the garden. Its a compact, fold-down shovel that is easy to pack or put behind the truck seat and take everywhere. Locks in 4 positions, straight for general digging, 90 degrees for use as a hoe or put the pick straight or at 90 degrees also.

You can also pull out the pick spide and the shovel blade both at 90 degree angles to make a make-shift stool. Not as comforable as a real stool, but better than squatting on your heals.

Measures: 17 1/2 inches closed or pick 90 degree angled, 25 inches shovel open, pick 4 inch.
Includes: Leather Cover.
Weight: 3 1/2 lbs.
Condition: Very Good

I guess I need to be hit over the head with a shovel..... I bought one of these and can't figure out how to open it.

There is a big button at the end of the shaft. It pushes in about a inch, then spings back. Move the blades when the button is pushed in. Grab the top neck with both hands and press with your thumbs.

I have located the screw on one side of the shaft, on the other side I believe is the Button you are refering to. But, it looks as if it is painted closed. It is flush with the metal of the shaft.

The screw and the other side is once peice. It is a lock lug. Press the screw side to move the lock lug out of possition so the shovel can change angles, then let the lug go and it will spring back to lock again.

Okay, I beat it into submission. After banging on it a while and removing and replacing the spring the button popped out. Now I am going to oil it, so it doesn't happen again. Love the weight. It looks sturdy enough for our rocky soil. Thanks
