Agree, they are not really up for the job of diging deep holes.

 

I find this below good at the moment. ;)

I keep one in the bottom of my kit. Locked sideways, they make a decent enough scraper. Every once in a while they fill the gap between a yoho and a real shovel. The only time they're good for digging serious holes is when you have the added incentive of incoming rounds. 'Course then you can dig a decent hole with your fingernails. :)

 

They also come in handy if you have to take a dump in the woods. :whistle:

There is a massive design fault in army folding shovels..They are perfectly designed to snap the moment you hit a root with the blade. In the middle of the night. In Wales. In the pissing rain.Just as your headtorch battereis need replacing..Not exactly productive to someone with such a calm relaxed outlook on life such as me...
