    Thank you for sharing the story about your grandpa. It made me smile and took me back to some memories of my own grandpa.

    Discovered your channel a couple of weeks ago and when I first saw you use an ET and some of the ways you described things, I pegged you for an ex soldier. I have dug many a great hole with an ET and they are much more than fit for purpose. Proof army procurement can get it right. But you didnt show its other use….as a stool.

    I just bought me one. I'm surprised I found this tool in my local hardware store. Although not military grade, it was only $8. 🙂

    Always loved the E-Tool. The U.S variant is very similar. Dug fighting positions and filled many a sand bag with it. Great for hacking, digging, and very tough. No surprise I use my issued one at home lol.

    This is the german version of this great tool.
    Very helpful when my drill officer called the command: "Make the Mole"
    In the 1980er I dig so many big holes with this tool. 😉

    Thanks Mark, never knew what it was properly called. Always keep one in the car for emergencies…a toilet roll fits the handle perfectly!

    I love mine but the pick broke off. It still I one of my most used tools. I had to replace the handle with metal conduit used in electrical systems. Works great!

    That ET looks like a handy unit for the tool shed, one question though, can it "phone home"? 🙂 Thanks for the vid Mark. It's stupid hot here right now, nothing is growing but okra, hot peppers, mucadines and my friggin lawn,,,,,gg.
