DESCRIPTION

Muzzle loaded pistol tool compendium, or combination tool marked:  '(?)(?) HELLSTROM' on the top line, & on the line below: 'ESKILSTUNA'.  The first two initials preceding 'Hellstrom' are difficult to read.

The sheath for one of the handles removes to reveal corkscrew with a cyphered worm.  The sharp tip is missing...perhaps 1/32 to 1/16th inch.  The opposite handle, which is fairly flat, and almost 1/4 inch thick, appears to be a fire steel, and features a file on the inside edge.  You can also see the grips on the inside surfaces up near the hinge...see detail in photo.

The flat handle also has a wire attached to it, but the use is unclear.  Perhaps it served as a spring to create tension as the handle is squeezed.  The wire is a bit deformed, so its use is a bit cryptic.

Tools include: corkscrew, duplex worm, grips, fire steel, hammer, wrench, and a pincer/cutter at the top near the hammer.  The truncated tip of the flat handle is probably a screw driver.

The overall length is 4 1/2 inches when the piece is in its most closed position.  All is sound, has minimal corrosion, and no distinct damage other than the bent wire attached to the flat handle and the tip of the worm.
