  4. The Glock field knife has its pros and cons:
    Pro:
    length: 160 mm
    Rather cheap
    good balanced
    integrated bottle opener 8)

    cons:
    steel is not stainless
    scabbard only suitable for some belts
    black coating not durable

    I used mine for some time and it never let me down but I changed it for a CRKT M60 recently - a bit more expensive but stainless steel, jagged blade, very durable 115 mm.

  5. Depending on the circumstances not being stainless could be seen as being an advantage.

    Stainless is hard and umm stainless, it doesn't corrode easily (althugh it does corrode), it can be brittle as a result of the hardening process, depends on the grade of stainelss and it's an absolute bugger to sharpen once you've worn the edge.

    High carbon tool seel tends to be more flexible and resistant to chipping, it doesn't hold it's edge as well as good stainless. It'll corrode easily if not cared for but it can be easily worked to a very fine edge with hand tools.

    Pays your money and takes your choice.

    Cheers Auld-Yin but 150 dollars to ship over here, they can naff orf. I thought that they look rather decent and for the price, you can hardly go wrong. As for the scabbard, theres always buckshe ways of attaching it to things, just takes some initiative.

    CS-92SF Cold Steel Special Forces Shovel

    Part #:CS-92SF
    COLD STEEL SPECIAL FORCES SHOVEL - The Special Forces Shovel is modeled after the original Soviet Spetsnaz shovel. The Spetsnaz were the Soviet army's most elite unit, and were renowned for the their deadly efficiency. Trained to travel light, the Sptesnaz packed only the bare essentials. One of their favorite tools was their unique shovel which features a broad flat blade and three sharp edges for maximum versatility. Cold Steel's shovel follows the Soviet design as faithfully as possible with improvements in the steel (twice as thick) and heat treatment.
