1. See Damage Increases by Size to calculate the damage for a weapon larger than Medium or smaller than Small.
2. Weight figures are for Medium weapons. A Small weapon weighs half as much, and a Large weapon weighs twice as much.
3. When two types are given, the weapon is both types if the entry specifies "and", either type (player's choice at time of attack) if the entry specifies "or", or each end of the double weapon is a different type if the entry specifies "/".
4. The hp value given is for Medium armor, weapons, and shields. Divide by 2 for each size category of the item smaller than Medium, or multiply it by 2 for each size category larger than Medium.

The Combat Spade, also known as an Entrenching Tool or E-tool, is a common and useful part of a soldier's gear allowing for many functional utility purposes, from digging to improvised crowbar. They have also been used as frighteningly effective weapons in combat, to the point of pushing out combat knifes in favor of the versitility of the shovel. With the proper application of force, its sharp edge becomes as good as cracking through skulls as a dagger, or it may be used to bludgeon a target into submission.

A combat spade functions as both a shovel and a crowbar, and is usually not identified as a weapon, making it easier to sneak in where weapons may not be allowed.
