Bundeswehr Tri-Fold E-Tool

Germans know efficiency. One Fold? Takes up too much space. Two Folds? Closer to optimal form. Three Folds? Perfect.

Similar to the Gebirgsjäger pack, the Bundeswehr’s tri-fold entrenching tool (E-Tool) has been replicated time and time again, to the point where more reproductions are on the market than the originals. We can confidently say these E-Tools are authentic, based on their stamping and solid construction.

How to Use

The E-Tool is easy to switch from “storage” (folded) mode to “active” (unfolded) mode. Simply twist the knob on the middle segment of the tool.

Turning Left loosens the joints of the E-Tool, allowing the user to unfold the tool or allow the tool to be refolded.

Turning Right tightens the joints of the E-Tool, locking the tool to be folded for storage or unfolded for use. 

Condition and Care

E-Tools are fully functional but may have scratches, dents, or paint chipped from use. The easiest way to fix the aforementioned cosmetic issues would be a fresh coat of paint (spray paint is the most viable option here), and fresh lubricant on the hinge joints. Once the paint and joint lubrication has been addressed, your E-Tool will be worthy of service for years to come.

Specs

  • Folded dimensions: 6” x 9” x 2”
  • Spring-locked folding system
  • Genuine Bundeswehr surplus
  • OD green paint
  • Perfect for the unhinged adolescent that wants to cosplay the Soldier from TF2
  • Folds three times!

Now I can finally recreate the Somme in my back garden

A little bit grubby, but a clean, some WD40 and a little paint will have it fixed.
