History

During WWII, many armies realized that it might be smart to put a folding shovel head on an E-tool. Not only do you get a more easily carried shovel but also a very practical pick. The US folding E-tool was issued in 1943. It didn’t manage to replace the older T-handle shovel but was used on all fronts. The idea was so good that e.g. French, Belgians, and also Danes copied it. To be even nicer to carry, a pouch was designed to accompany it.

Features

This green carrier fits the M-1943 E-tool head and the shaft goes through the hole at the bottom. There is an M-1910 steel hook hanger on the backside that can be set at three different heights. The carrier is closed with a lift-the-dot fastener. These are made from thick cotton canvas, the color of which varies to some extent from cover to cover. The E-tool is not included but e.g. the Danish version of the M43 E-tool fits in this quite nicely. Some have U.S. stamps, some don’t.

Condition

Used US military surplus. These are decades old and seen a varied amount of use. Nevertheless, they are in perfectly serviceable condition. That, my friend, is quality workmanship.
