After N8's graduation weekend, Sweet Pea and I each received a set of new-unissued, German Bundeswehr mess-utensils. We absolutely love them and I have been using mine every day for my work lunches............ well, a little research revealed that these sets are exact copies of the original issue WW2 German Army mess-utensil sets! The only difference is in the maker and date stampings. In fact, many appear to be manufactured by the same companies that made them during WW2, and probably using the same dies.
I found a source for early post-war sets and picked a couple more up. I have assembled a set for the BGS Bike with a great mix of early dates: 1959, 1960, 1961, 1962.
These things are GREAT!
