Here it is folks, an original military surplus German tri-fold shovel – built to exact NATO specifications. These shovels are manufactured entirely from steel, giving them a solid, durable construction that will last for years to come. Each shovel is in very good condition, though they may show some signs of usage. Weighing in at an extremely manageable 2.5 pounds, these shovels fold in three different places. At a full extension, the shovel measures approximately 23 inches long and 6 inches wide. However, when folded, the shovel measures an astonishing 9 inches long and 6 inches wide, which provides for easy storage in just about any location.

The blade can be locked straight out at 180 degrees to be used as a shovel or it can be locked at 90 degrees and used as a pick. To lock the blade, simply unfold the shovel to the desired angle and twist the rotating cylinder located on the handle. This will lock both the blade and the handle in place. Additionally, two of the four edges are serrated and can be used for sawing-like motions.

Let’s shift to authenticity for a moment. Some stores sell tri-fold shovels that they claim are German military items. However, when they arrive they have a big manufacturer sticker that proves otherwise. You can rest assured that these German tri-fold shovels are original German military surplus items due to the “BUND” stamp located on the handle – indicating that they were indeed used by the Bundeswehr, or German Armed Forces.

  2. Better quality than my US AMES Folding Shovels review by Ziggy on 8/17/2017

    I already own one of these fine German shovels its dated (BUND 87) and i bought it at a yard sale for 5 dollars, Amazing deal. Well when i saw KeepShooting having a sale on these for only 14.95 I had to buy another, recieved it today and its BUND 02/11, and in like new condition. I also own 4 US Ames folding shovels all great shovels too but in my opinion i believe the German Folding Shovel to be of better quality. If I had to choose between one over the other i would take the German tool. I think i misread some comments i thought that this shovel came with a cover and Alice Clips but either way Still a Great deal.Thank You KeepShooting for the Great Deals and Excellent Customer Service.

    Almost spent 50$ at Amazon for a US GI shovel -- glad I found this though, just as good, just as tough, lightly used, for half the price. Keep it in my car for emergencies. Nice case too.

    This short little shovel is very handy on hiking trips. It can do a lot more than just dig. There are some very useful serrations ready ti do whatever. It locks up very tight and can take some real abuse!

    Very good shovel, True German military surplus with the famous quality. Mine is almost brand new from the late 80's. It folds in to a very small size, good for any backpack or ATV. Get it while you can. Thanks to the folks from KeepShooting, It will serve me right.

    This is the real deal. No cheap Kmart/ Walmart camping shovel. Buy once, cry once my dad used to say. Stay away from that cheap junk. Mine was slightly used, still has 80% of the paint on it.

  18. Great Multi-Use Shovel... review by Jedediah The GyroCaptain on 5/13/2013
    Quality
    Price
    Value

    Great shovel, Bundeswehr issue. Because of NATO standardization, this shovel is the same as that issued by the US military (other than the green paint job).

    + The head of the shovel can be locked in place at 90 degrees for use as a pick, or locked all the way out for use as a shovel.

    + The shovel I have is dated 1990, but saw little use.

    + These fold up in sort of a "Z" motion, and are very compact.

    + This BW shovel is great for gardening; in the winter they would be great for throwing in the car trunk "just in case."

    Quality

    This shovel is rock-solid and certainly not some cheap knockoff. The head tightly locks into place in the desired configuration as a shovel or pick. The case is a nice touch and can be attached to a belt if need be. However, the shovel folds to such a compact package that you can easily pack it in your bag of choice.

    Mine came used, but in very good condition.

    Reminds me of the E-TOOL I was issued when I enlisted in the US Army. The one I received was used, but in perfect condition. Usually anything that is German or Swiss, is a higher quality than that of other countries, especially China. Great price, great item, and fast shipping!

    Right off the bat you can tell the quality in the workmanship and build of this shovel. It is tough and ready to be put to hardwork, without falling apart like some of the cheap knockoffs out there. A truly dependable piece of work.
