Swedish Army Folding Shovel


A heavy-duty folding shovel from the Swedish Military. Available with or without an optional aluminium snow blade attachment.

Also known as the Swedish E-Tool, KLAS or Faltspade.

Built to last, this superb entrenching tool has an ergonomically shaped handle and robust design; the folding mechanism is strong with a finely engineered locking ring that moves smoothly and does not rattle.

Dimensions (without snow blade):

Weight 1.25 kg
Blade length 26 cm
Blade width 18 cm
Handle length 44 cm
Working length 69 cm
Folded length 49 cm

The blade can be locked securely in one of two positions allowing it to be used either as a pick or shovel.

In used ('grade 1') fully functional condition – signs of use as you'd expect from a shovel but not abused. Shovels may have been repainted in the field and some may require paint.

For shifting snow you need a larger blade and the optional snow blade provides just that.

The snow blades are in good condition with minor scratching on the surface. The pressed aluminium blade is strong and rigid and fits securely to the main blade using two bolts.

Both the snow blade and shovel are stamped with the Swedish Military three crowns.

Snow blade:

Weight 0.4 kg
Length 35 cm
