Kreigsmarine Engineer's Bevel
This instrument which is the first example we have ever seen, is extremely heavily built and while for sale as a collector's item, would undoubtedly provide many years of use as originally intended. Timber was used to affect temporary battle damage repairs to both allied and axis vessels in WWII and we would surmise this fine bevel would have been an essential part of the ship's carpenter's tool box. It is stamped Angulus which in Latin means a corner and is also the manufacturer's name, having been established at Remscheild in 1898. The bevel also carries a Waffen Ampt stamp. This is a large and heavy item, so please check postage before ordering. Folded length 23.5" (60 cm).
