M1887 Feldspaten

In-game model

The M1887 entrenching tool was carried by most infantry and used for field works. In the close confines of a trench, rifles and fixed bayonets were often too long for effective use, often forcing entrenching tools into close-quarter fighting. From 1915, soldiers on both sides routinely sharpened the edges of entrenching shovels for use as weapons.
