What Army Shovels/E-Tools do you have for your kits?

I picked one of these up today without a cover from a store called Princess Auto, http://www.princessauto.cafor $24.99, it is stamped 1964 and was near mint. I am in the middle of doing some mods to it, such as giving it a 'machete' edge on the one side and a saw edge on the opposite side. I have also sharpened the end pretty good. When it's complete, I will post some pics!

Nice pic Wookard! Unfortunately I'm not very good at posting pics, but I do have a tri-fold black e-tool from about 1989 along with the rubbery-like sheath for it and I also have an East German folding shovel similar to yours. Massachusetts law does not allow sharpened edges on folding shovels so I was unable to add a spetsnaz issue spade to my collection. Those things are vicious!

I use this one....an DDR/NVA Klappspaten. It has a serrated side.It can be used as a hammer and you can even pull nails with it. :mrgreen:

Bundeswehr Klappspaten..

Picked it up for.. well.. Free to be honest. :roll:

(picture dus resembles.. same type, but with a flecktarn cordura nylon cover instead)
Sure, someone may one day kill me with my own gun.
But they'll have to beat me to death with it because it's empty.
