Just recently I found this little knife in my workshop, when we moved to our new apartment. Unfortunately the colors in the flags are gone, but I will restore them as soon as I have the time. Like the one I posted earlier it was used in SAS as gifts when my father worked there in the 50’s and 60’s:
At the same time I found this strange scissor/knife hybrid. I had it when I was a kid. Believe it or not, but it is supposed to have these functions: Scissor, glass cutter, ruler, screwdriver, file, pliers, hammer (very, very little!), cigar cutter, sail needle, two knives when hinged apart (special hinge broken), spiked wheel for what? and finally adjustable cutting length for making buttonholes! There used to be a small magnifying glass in the very little hole next to the handle:
In 1968 I was in Paris visiting my uncle Niels Edgar. It was just after the big fights in the streets, and there were police everywhere. Anyway we had a great time, went to the Lido to see the topless dancers (and Siegfried & Roy!), saw all the sights and had dinner in a 3-star restaurant. I bought a knive-souvenier in the famous Coutelier Emile PETER. I have used it a lot over the years, since it is both versatile and sturdy, with adjustable spanner, knife, normal- and philips screwdriver, ruler, file (on the back), an awl and some sort of cigar cutter:
I bought this little handy knife in Geneva in the seventies. It is a “Herbertz Verlängerungsmesser Hirschhorn” and you can still buy them. A real classic:
Finally I will show you a very important tool that I used to carry together with the Peter-knife. It a a very “naughty” screwdriver with a lady wearing a bathing suit that will disappear when you turn it upside down!
