    Hi!

    I have a russian entrenching tool and it has stamps S and 1893 at spade. Do anybody know something about it? Is a stamp 1893 manufacturing year and what is the manufacturer S (maybe Sohlberg from Helsinki)? Shovel is possible re-painted at the soviet arsenal because it is at very good condition, I suppose. Here is some pictures:
