    M1909 worth the cost?

    Not really. Warm yes, but cotton outer. Not much use for a winter coat in soggy old Blighty

    Deejo knives...what is it about them?

    I have a KISS as my caving knife - keep it to hand around my neck. Small, flat and lightweight Survived many muddy crawls. Easy to clean. Hard to beat

    The tri fold issue ones aren't anywhere near as heavy duty as the old one (though I've also now ordered trifold as smaller)

    Tri fols shovel /e tool

    Anyone know of a relatively cheap source of genuine tri fold NATO shovels? I've had a look and can only find battered ones or expensive ones. I'm after one to keep in car until I sort WG one / take paddle camping.

    Detachable would be handy... Fit in the spare wheel bay easier then

    West German entrenching tool

    Anyone repaired one of these? The handle on mine snapped the other day.... Its was 1966 issue so no big surprises. But the head is still in very good condition. It looks like there are 2 pins in the way of drilling out the broken wood

    Paramo - checked them out and can't decide if good or not.

    I find my MRT Kongur a bloody awful jacket, heavy badly fitting crisp packet - only wear it as its team issue. Much rather my tatty old Montane thingy or my Paramo Valez hybrid
