Hartkopf & co questions

Postby Ribbit » Mon Jan 08, 2018 3:23 am

I've researched Hartkopf but have found very little about their vintage "stuff". This tang stamp I have found no where. Any ideas as to age, era, etc?
This little jewel is tight, well put together in my opinion.
Any In-put would be appreciated.

That looks like it might have been part of a multi-tool kit with extra blades or tools that would attach to a pin at the opposite end.
