Have you ever seen a Soviet or Russian entrenching tool?

No, but have been thinking of getting one for myself and one for Pops for X-Mas.

I would like to spar with him though.

Reminds me of Indiana Jones when that Kung Fu guy was doing all that shit and Indiana pulled out his gun and shot him dead.

Somebody needs to remix that vid with some techno music....................

+1 on the e-tool.

I love the e-tool as a trunk tool/weapon. More useful than a baseball bat, less suspicious than a machete.

That is the trademark Spetznatz training style -- they feel if it ain't over in 10-20 seconds they are/have lost. So a lot of their training is to get it over fast ----in a flurry of action.

2 years of Martial Arts taught me one thing solid. I learned a form called Running Chicken. It is the perfect form when faced with an adversary such as that.

Readers of [i[The Guardians will recall that Billy McKay wielded a Swedish (?) entrenching tool with a sharpened edge for CQB hand-to-hand nasty stuff....

Can one of you martial arts enthusiasts out there instruct the rest of us in the deadly
"Shovel Kata"?

I remember at FT. Leonard Wood, we had a Battalion run and the Lt. Col talked about an Engineer who killed something like 10 to 15 Chinese with an E-tool and was later awarded the Medal of Honor.

*BROWN, MELVIN L.

Rank and organization: Private First Class, U.S. Army, Company D, 8th Engineer Combat Battalion. Place and date: Near Kasan, Korea, 4 September 1950. Entered service at: Erie, Pa. Birth: Mahaffey, Pa. G.O. No.: 11, 16 February 1951. Citation. Pfc. Brown, Company D distinguished himself by conspicuous gallantry and intrepidity above and beyond the call of duty in action against the enemy. While his platoon was securing Hill 755 (the Walled City), the enemy, using heavy automatic weapons and small arms, counterattacked. Taking a position on a 50-foot-high wall he delivered heavy rifle fire on the enemy. His ammunition was soon expended and although wounded, he remained at his post and threw his few grenades into the attackers causing many casualties. When his supply of grenades was exhausted his comrades from nearby foxholes tossed others to him and he left his position, braving a hail of fire, to retrieve and throw them at the enemy. The attackers continued to assault his position and Pfc. Brown weaponless, drew his entrenching tool from his pack and calmly waited until they 1 by 1 peered over the wall, delivering each a crushing blow upon the head. Knocking 10 or 12 enemy from the wall, his daring action so inspired his platoon that they repelled the attack and held their position. Pfc. Brown's extraordinary heroism, gallantry, and intrepidity reflect the highest credit upon himself and was in keeping with the honored traditions of the military service. Reportedly missing in action and officially killed in action, September 5, 1950.

<-Brown at his seat in Valhalla.
