Blast From The Past – 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 horde 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.

    Couldnt open it above, but found it on Youtube. It’s hysterical, one of the funniest military videos Ive watched.

    Shield is the best function

    If only there was a blooper reel to go with it. Smashed fingers, lacerations on every limb, spectacular falls. It must have been awesome filming!

    Sooo, is it made in China??? Seems like some pretty good propaganda for all those “flawless” functions! Lol

    Other uses for the Chinese Super E-tool:
    -Really big spoon
    -Field Marshalls baton
    -Signal panel (after you spend five weeks scraping the paint to bare metal)
    -Improvised camouflage (hold it in front of your face and sneak around)
    -Bullet proof sniper shield (bullet proof-ness not guaranteed)

    I love the American Old West movie inspired music but I’m not crazy about it’s “Hack political dissidents to death” feature. Otherwise pretty entertaining.

    Old vietnamese proverb:
    Spending real ammo on real targets,
    damaging your riflebutt on peoples enemies
    and when you run out off real ammo…

    I caved and I bought a used one. Looks better than your average short spade E-Tool. Very creative video, even if it’s ridiculous. Seeing the prices on these even now I see some inclination to quality. If it works it works.
