If you can think of something to talk about that is not related to knives, discuss it here.

Maybe a household multi-tool?? ::shrug:: My maternal grandfather had a small, all metal, hammer that held nested screwdrivers in the handle.

Much like this.
Now thats what I was talking about in the above post, it seems to be missing in action. ::mdm::

Seems Crown Cutlery Co., Germany made very similar ones to what was posted.

Great find. ::tu:: ::tu:: ::tu:: And there is your answer, a multi- tool. Same principal as the old fold up tool kits that used to be carried in the leather pouch under bike seats[ i am showing my age now ], there to get you out of a jam if needed, not specialist tools . And the Germans made very good tools.

So, it went from being a child's toy, to being an old multitool, just like that!
I thought that it was too small to be used as a real hammer, but I studied it more as I rubbed it down with oil, and the face of the hammer has some dings fron use!
Y'all were right!

That German Crown tool works the very same way. It does look to be a bit better quality from my Japanese version, but otherwise it works exactly the same.
