The Chinese Entrenching Tool

This may prove to be the most entertaining 8:46 of your life, or the most terrifying if you consider the Chinese hoard all armed to the teeth with these shovels. It slices, it dices, it juliennes. Truth be told, a couple of the features such as the “scissor” and nail puller are pretty cool, but music and effects make this one worth the price of admission. Make sure you stay long enough to see the entrenching tool museum.

Fanboy note: Where can I get one of these?

    This one has appeared before somewhere. A bunch of us here in Australia checked this out and found this…………

    Product Introduction:

    They were asking USD$45.00 per shovel with a minimum order of 1,000.

    Too rich for us so we declined to place an order, especially as it probably cost him $10.00 OR LESS to make it in the PRC.
