Swords Into Plowshares, Helmets Into Ladles

John Foster of Accidental Mysteries blog came across this piece that crystallizes the words "swords into plowshares" into a real life object:

I purchased this from my friend Joshua Lowenfels, who found it at a flea market in NYC. He purchased it from an old German fellow who was parting with a few things from his life. The handle is only about two feet long, so it appears to have been used as a sort of ladle for scooping and pouring wet concrete. I got weak-kneed when I saw it. If this isn’t the most perfect statement on the whole failed Nazi experiment, and of war in general, I don’t know of one.
