The online community of knife collectors, A Knife Family Forged in Steel
I ran across this while trolling for fishing knives. I suppose I could say it is a knife. After all it does have a blade! But then it is just a scaling blade! These came out in the 1950s. (see the jpeg of the Popular Science ad from 1951, at the bottom of this post.)
This one was dang near mint. Everything works great. It even had the razor blades!
The tip at the bottom of the tool is used for popping open vacumm sealed lids. You can also use for paint cans and such. The long blade has a scaler, cap lifter, flat head screw driver/hook degroger, and a reel wrench. The item still had the original paper work.
Below is the advertisement that appeared in Popular Science.
You might say a very early Victoronix?
I enjoyed that Tobias, you find some interesting things.
Thanks Ricky. I have since learned that this knife was initially released with a small folding multi-tool that had a knife and tweezers and then later released with one side razor blades which are secured on the lid of the closing box. I guess the hunt is on for the other version!
That is a neat tool!
Also among my fish knife collection are some Imperials.
