Chinese Army Shovel

 If you are a fan of the Swiss Army knife, take a look at the many uses for the amazing Chinese military shovel.  

Also called a multifunctional or engineer’s shovel, this WJQ-308 shovel is the Swiss Army knife of folding entrenching tools.

From digging, to cutting wire to climbing walls, to preparing food, the uses for this remarkable tool will amaze.

Watch this video accompanied by the score from the Magnificent 7.  The Chinese army shovel may change your mind about the humble entrenching tool.

OK I’m suitably amazed.  Now where do I get a Chinese Military Shovel WJQ-308? 

Here’s a site that sells the Chinese Military Shovel WJQ-308 

The WJQ-308 is also sold on e-Bay by various sellers.

Strangely enough, the price is rather high for the real McCoy, about $120!


It’s not quite the same tool, but take a look at the features and reviews of the Gerber 30-000075 E-Tool Folding Spade with Serrated Blade.  

The Gerber uses a different mechanism, for example no wire cutter.  

Still the Gerber E-tool Folding Spade is beloved by users and a very competitive price!
