I am pretty sure this and others like it are just a large surplus dealer using left over parts to make something he can sell. Take a left over or rejected blade and handle stamp out a piece to hold them together add a couple of rivets and scrap becomes a salable commodity. Then several years later a militaria dealer gets a hold of it and it becomes a rare prototype, cheap garden spade to valuable collectible in two seconds flat.
