An entrenching tool (U.K.), intrenching tool (U.S.), E-tool, or trenching tool is a digging tool used by military forces for a variety of military purposes. Survivalists, campers, hikers and other outdoors groups have found it to be indispensable in field use. Modern entrenching tools are usually collapsible and made using steel, aluminum, or other light metals.
The United States Army entrenching tool has evolved since the time of the Pattern 1907 non-folding T-handled spade to a tri-fold design with a modified “D” handle design with all steel construction, to a similar light weight plastic and steel tri-fold design adopted by NATO as the standard issue entrenching tool. Other folding variants have also been issued.
- x2 Ontario Knife Company Machetes: The machetes are in a 1986 dated scabbard by Stemaco. Both are slightly used and have minor surface rust with signs of sharpening. A good machete can be used to chop down large diameter trees, clear brush, slash through hanging vines, sharpen tent stakes, cut up firewood, and make a great defensive weapon against creatures large and small. If you need to have a good cutting tool with you, these Ontario 18" is a great way to start!
