Function: The Mattax is a dual-purpose tool combining the functions of a mattock and an ax and is intended for hand excavation which is difficult to perform with the entrenching tool.

Description: The Mattax has a two-sided metal head between 9-11 inches long: one side is a mattock and the other side is an ax. It comes with a carrying case which can be affixed to the equipment belt or pack. It has a 24-inch handle constructed of wood. The handle is replaceable and separable from the head. Normally one man in the fireteam will have this tool. This tool is for use with the entrenching tool. It will assist in loosening hard ground and chopping through roots.
