Much more than a handheld mirror, this authentic Italian Army Surplus Signal Mirror is a must-have for every bug-out bag, hidden supply cache or emergency shelter. This genuine piece of Italian military surplus equipment is one of many signal mirrors utilized by the Italian Army and most NATO allied military forces. Far from being limited to just signaling, soldiers in the field have come to rely upon mirrors like this one for a variety of tasks. One of the most common extracurricular uses was shaving in the field. The mirror features a folding handle that can be used to hang it from a tree or other solid object in the field, affording soldiers two free hands with which to shave while on extended deployment in various locales and terrains. At 4 1/2” x 3 1/2", this handy signal mirror fits easily in your pocket or pack, and its stainless steel construction protects it from harsh environments and extreme weather. If soldiers relied on it in the field, it stands to reason that this versatile Italian Military Surplus Signal Mirror is a good tool to have around when disaster or other emergency strikes, if you become lost in the wilderness, or if you need to communicate over long distances when there’s little or no cell phone service.
