    Looks OK to me, i've seen "ago" marked klappspaten before. The only little downside is it's been repainted and whoever did so painted part of the handle!..
    It's a wasted trip baby. Nobody said nothing about locking horns with no Tigers.

    Can someone confirm or deny what I was told many years ago to identify these.

    Dutch E tool ribs are not as pronounced ( are more rounded ) than the German made tool and a "true" German tool has an angled stop so the handle when closed does not lay parallel with the blade so it sits away from the soldiers leg. This is similar to the angle on the flat shovel.

    Tom or any other equipment guys or gals, what are your thoughts on these beliefs?

    Yeah Dan you are right, i think the handle on the German tool rests a few degrees away from the "blade" when folded!...

    Hello,
    No, it means that the metal/bakelite ring has been unscrewed enough to allow the blade to lie against the handle...
    Here the ring on Tom's folding shovel is not completly unscrewed...it has been screwed up to block the blade to show that when the ring is screwed up enough to block the blade when the latter it's folded, then both are not parallel...but if you unscrew the ring down till "the end", you can of course have them parallel...otherwise it would have been a serious problem to carry a folding tool that can't be properly folded...i hope it makes sense...
    Thanks
