18th Century Gun Tool Combination

Amazing18th Century English gun tool combination which unscrews to show a wire helix corkscrew and a screw driver.  Other parts unscrew to show a pricker and a double helix debris extractor, and at the top, pliers. There is a slot cut into the part above the double helix that the shaft of the screw driver fits into to form a turning handle.

Condition very good – nice steel patina overall, some scratches and marks on the top handle.  The screw-in part of the double helix has some traces of brass plating. Double helix and worm all complete.  160mm long.

See Giulian – 18th C Corkscrews – page 93, 95 for similar examples.
