Very good Reviewed by A satisfied customer on Jun 02, 2015   4 out of 5

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.

This is a must have Reviewed by Dale on May 19, 2015   5 out of 5

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.

M48 Tac Shovel Reviewed by Chris on Apr 21, 2014   5 out of 5

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.

Best Tactical Shovel Out There Reviewed by Zac on Mar 06, 2014   5 out of 5

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.

awesome Reviewed by Matthew on Sep 03, 2013   5 out of 5

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.
