    Can anyone ID this E-Tool?

    Post by Charlie3-3 on Thu Sep 14, 2017 8:00 pm

    I found three of these entrenching tools at an auction a few months ago and I have looked at lots of photos of e-tools and I have not been able to ID them, any ideas?

    I need to double check, but I have either French or Danish tools with that style blade.

    I thought it would be easy to figure this out but so far nothing. With that said I now have an abundance of knowledge of the worlds e-tools and I appreciate any information you may have. Thanks!!

    My memory was not quite right. This is a Norwegian tool. I have an identical example that came from Norwegian surplus. The French made a similar tool, but the details are clearly distinct - much larger rivets, different pattern of ribbing on the adjusting net for example. Also, the French tools are stamped with stock numbers and dates.

    The Norwegians made a few different style carriers, and probably also used US GI carriers left over from the Second World War.
