Product Description
Type 2 Shovel Carrier Rear detail. Shown with shovel in place. Tacticool option. Yes, wartime
photos show some German
troops carrying stick grenades
in their shovel carriers.

New, quality copies of the 2nd Type carrier for the WWII German Folding Shovels (Klappspaten). Our carriers are copied from an original, and have all the same details, down to the hand stitched construction. The hardware and pattern are identical to WWII.

Folding shovels appeared early in the War, and was a great improvement over the standard entrenching tools, but they both styles were issued and used until the end.

WWII maker marked and dated.
The bayonet won't work if I put the scabbard through the loop! That's right- why the German made them like this is unknown. If one uses a standard or mounted frog, they cannot use the scabbard loop on the carrier as it forces the bayonet up 2-3 inches too far.
The solution is to use the M43/Late-War/ SS frogs. Despite their many other names, the actual purpose for these frogs was likely to accompany these carriers. Of note, I carried one of these along with a bayonet for years and never use the loop or the other frog. It didn't matter.
