Description
 



New, quality copies of the "box top" 1st Type carrier for the WWII German Folding Shovels (Klappspaten). Our carriers are copied from an original, and have all the same details, down to the hand stitched construction. The hardware and pattern are identical to WWII. Dated 1940.

Folding shovels appeared early in the War, and was a great improvement over the standard entrenching tools, but they both styles were issued and used until the end. Troops of the Heer, Waffen SS and Luftwaffe used both types- their issue appeared random and was not unit specific.

Wear Note: These were sometimes used to carry stick grenades- but the box top makes that tough. If that's the look you're after, the Type II works much better.
