Swiss service belt, leather, surplus
A very high quality thick leather belt. These are old Swiss army combat belts used to carry kit and of course being Swiss are just a tad different than most similar belts.
Swiss shoe care set, surplus
Full set of what you need to care for your leather footwear. Shoe creme might be used up though...
Swiss super field jacket M70, Alpenflage, used
The Swiss tend to make their gear with some pretty unique touches. This jacket is probably the best example of this trend - besides being a jacket, it acts as a combat load bearing system! To top it off, the camouflage is the legendary "Alpenflage".
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).
Swiss M84 water bottle with metal cup, surplus
An army issue plastic water bottle and aluminum cup for a ludicrously low price. This is a very good solid set for cheap.
Swiss wool blanket, repro
Could it be the first time ever when they made a very much like a military issue surplus blanket that's thick, woollen, large and considering these, quite damn modestly priced. Well here's a reproduction of the Swiss army model with a red stripe and Swiss cross. These work as nice pointers when folding the blanket!
Swiss gaiters, grey, surplus
Excellent gaiters for an insane price - who the hell decided to get rid of these for this cheap!? Swiss army surplus.
Swiss M84 water bottle cup, aluminium, surplus
About the size of a large coffee cup, this Swiss army article is naturally well made and cheap as dirt. It even has a pair of folding ears to ease storage.
Swiss folding entrenching tool. Made with love & skill in times past. Comes with a brown leather carrier with belt loops and all. Used and serviceable, very solid kit.
A folding e-tool is one of the finest inventions of the 20th century, if you ask any infantry soldier. While originally issued with rigid spades that were always getting in your way or digging into you, in the late 30's the German Wehrmacht (not surprisingly) added a hinge to it, and Americans soon followed. These days virtually all military e-tools fold at least once and double as a hoe, and most actually are tri-folders to fit them into a belt pouch.
These are extremely well made and reliable e-tools. Can be folded to three positions (spade, hoe and transport), and with the provided carrier, can be attached to most max. 5 cm wide belts and whatever. The earliest have been made in the 50's and newer ones in the 80's. All have seen honest and proper use.
The carrier is made to fit many Swiss backpacks and of course belts too, but with some very little tinkering can be attached to anything you could think of.
Although these are used, they still have a long service life ahead. Some small details might be worn or a rivet missing, nothing that would stop you from actually using this.
