    Anybody seen this type of handle before  I didn,t, there is no metal on the handle and there never was any.
    It look,s like they made handles without metal, it is broadarrow dated 1942.

    Interesting, although there is a good chance that the handle is not for the Entrenching Tool but for something else.

    That was my thougt also Ed, but it came with an E-tool a few years ago from an attic in the north of Holland (Assen).
    At that time I thougt it was not original, and swapped it for another handle and sold the e-tool.
    Recently I rediscovered the handle in my shed and saw it was wartime dated, I didn't notice that earlyer.

    Here is a pic of the find, the Mk3 and M42 are still in my collection.
