9-70 Entrenching Tool
The 9-70 Entrenching Tool is one of the standard pieces of equipment of the Imperial Guard. The 9-70 entrenching tool is intended primarily for filling sandbags. This small, folding spade is invaluable for digging trenches, shoring up earthen mounds, and preparing other basic defensive structures. The heavy blade of the 9-70 also makes for an excellent improvised weapon, and many Guardsmen believe that a well-sharpened entrenching tool makes for a better melee weapon than their standard-issue knife.
