    what's your price point?
    compact steel shovels made in Mexico are going to be under $10.
    Ames & True Temper have USA made full size shovels, but not compact
    american made tri-fold mil-surp are going to be $20-35
    American made compact steel fixed handle shovels are going to be heavy -- frequently with a steel tube for the handle - and pricey.

    If you don't mind going vintage there are some interesting entrenching tools on eBay.

    I'm still hunting for a steel D-handle that I can fit onto a chopped down wood handle shovel.
    My plan is to reshape the shovel blade with an angle grinder into a more compact size.
    The goal is to get all the components from pieces being thrown out or given away, and not spend a dime.
    I'm either weird, cheap, or both, lol.

    Not USA made but a heck of a good shovel made by Cold Steel. I've had one almost 20 years.
