This dual purpose item was originally a dwarven innovation. Used by miners in unfriendly territory to both fight and dig, these shovels have saved many dwarven lives. This weapon causes slashing damage when the edge of the shovel is used and bludgeoning damage when the flat of the shovel is used. Other races have been quick to adopt the combat shovel as a digging tool in hostile areas and occasionally as equipment issued to specialized troops. Adamantine versions with darkwood hafts are popular with dwarven diggers.
