      Many thanks for the information! Very interesting that it was used for 28 cm projectiles. Are we talking about guns on naval wessels, coastal artillery or other types of guns? Is this a common fuze?

        Once again many thanks to klarkon for the information! In connection with my question regarding the “Zt.Z. S/5” I want to show some pictures of a “Stellschlüssel” I just bought. This is the only pictures I have per now and unfortunately the picture of the markings is very blurry, but the markings are “Zt.Z. S/5 Sk262”.

        Does anyone know what “Sk262” means?

        I was also wondering if it is difficult to find a fuze of this type? Would be very nice to have both items!

          I've never seen this Zt.Z.S/5 fuse with my own eyes............ I have only pics.
          I have no clue what Sk262 means..........

          The fuse was designed for ammunition of this cannon : https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Krupp_K5

              Some may choose to ignore the past but they cannot erase the past.

                  The postman just delivered my fuze tool and here are two more pictures of it. There are some small rust stains on it but IMO the tool is in very good condition.

                  Information regarding what "Sk.262" stands for would be much appreciated.
