The spade is a weapon used by Van Helsinki during the fight with Svetlana during Van Helsinki. Van tries to use the spade to defeat Svetlana when he is brainwashed by Geoff Vampire. His attempts fail, as he is first hit in the face by Man accidently, then cut through the chest by Svetlana. Van only has time to swing the spade once.
Behind the scenes and trivia:
- The spade was picked up from the shed where Geoff's lair was based, and simply put into service as a prop.
- The soade is one of two close combat weapons Van uses, with the other being the Stake.
