Anyone need folding shovels?
August 03, 2018 01:51PM
I have 5 WWII Ames folders. Bought them years ago to sell to my buddies but never got around to it. Trying to get rid of some "stuff". Two of them are just like new with cases and they are $40 each and three others with some diggin' experience 1 with a case for $30 and two without cases $25. I have one 1944 Ames that needs a handle so if you know how to whittle you can have it for $15. I also have a Lesche folding shovel with a little experience for $45. These 1940's Ames shovels are getting hard to find and they work great down in huts/trashpits.You can pick em up at the hunt meeting or I'll ship for the actual shipping cost. If you wanna pick em up I'll require prepayment as some folks are like me and seem to forget. Two more pic to follow since Donnie will only let me post 5 pics.

Are by far the best quality WWII folders. There were several other makers but they fell short on quality construction. The Ames shovels have a slight curvature to the blade that makes the much easier to dig with.
