Original Finnish barbed wire cutter carrier. According to the manuals the barbed wire cutters with a carrier were to be issued to every infantry squad leader, however in practice that was not the case.
The carrier is made of khaki heavy cotton canvas with a leather trim. The carrier flap closes with a leather strap and a steel buckle. There are two leather belt loops on the back.
The carrier should fit German style short wire cutters and Russian style short wire cutters.
The inside measurements are as follows:
- Bottom width: 13 cm
- Top width: 15 cm
- Height: 40 cm
There is surface oxidation and rust on the metal parts, but overall everything is in good condition. There is a Finnish Army property SA stamp on the flap.
