    Just bought a nice E Tool with carrier.

    The carrier is a US 1944 dated one re issued and fitted with Belgian belt hanger. The tool itself is unstamped and the head was painted matt black and fitted with some form of Biohazard stickers!!!!

    Have removed the stickers and they removed the paint underneath to see its in its life had at least 2 different green repaints(fancy trying to remove all the matt black paint).

    Most worryingly is half of the handle has been taped up with what looks like black pvc insulating tape and am itching to remove it but am guessing its there for a reason,to cover up some damage maybe?
