Finnish E-tool, WW2 model, surplus
Genuine Finnish Army spade. Like most Finnish stuff this tool looks rough, but is virtually indestructible. The oldest ones we've seen were made in 1914! These are pieces of history and continue to serve for a long time to come.
Mil-Tec sleeping mat, Olive Drab
The most basic sleeping mat is a piece of foam plastic. Affordable and durable - holes and damage do not really alter the function.
Ekol leather oil, 0,25l
Superb stuff for treating all kinds of leather (not suede), making it more water repellent, more flexible and on the whole better. Not recommended for anything with a membrane (e.g. Gore-Tex).
Tallipoika leather grease, 500 ml, clear
A large half a litre bucket of leather grease, just as good as any fine brand, but without a fancy name and thus cheaper.
The old Swedish army rucksack. Basically a 35-40 l canvas pack with a metal frame and high quality leather straps. This is essentially the same model as original Bergans of Norway rucksack used by allied paratroops, commandos, special forces and anyone else lucky enough to get sent up mountains or into the arctic. These are getting a bit rare - we got a handful!
If you loathe synthetic materials, try this - the whole thing is made of cotton duck, leather and steel! A very simple model: the mouth is closed with a tie-string and straps are of course fully adjustable. Two leather cargo straps at the bottom allow some extra stuff to be carried there, like a rolled blanket or shelter half.
These are from the good old days when Sweden heroically fought in WWII. After winning the war, they decided to keep these in use to show everyone else who's boss in Scandinavia.
Used stuff. Although these are in good serviceable condition, some leather grease & slight oiling wouldn't hurt - these are pretty old. Do that, and this will probably last forever.
