Does anybody know what kind of tools these are?

Post by rflem59801 » Thu Dec 05, 2019 7:34 pm

I have this old salesman sample, advertising knife, but I'm not sure what the tools are for. The one has a can opener, screwdriver, and a square hole that I'm not sure what it is for. The other is about a 1/4" square and is 1 5/8" long, it tapers a little on the tip.
Thanks!

Some photos would help, but I'm sure that 1/4" square hole is a Presto Lite key, used on old lighting equipment in the early part of the twentieth century.

Sorry the pictures didn't download, or I forgot to add them.
Thanks!

That’s a knife made for carpenters to set door handles. (The old style - I think they were called mortise locks.)

This post probably needs to be moved to the general knife forum where it’s likely to be seen by more members.You posted it in the member store forum, intended for use by those who have AAPK stores.

Topic moved to the General Knife Discussion forum.

It's an interesting tool, I am not seen one like that before.
Pretty cool. ::tu::

Up there at the very top of the page in the light grey colored header, click on “Forum”. Then scroll down and find “General Knife Discussion”.

As was stated before a carpenter's tool. Here is a simpler version. What looks like a screwdriver bit on the end of the handle is actually a paint can opener as evidenced by the advertising on the handle(French for paint).
