DESCRIPTION

Rare, Unusual 1896 Müller Patent Corkscrew & Cigar Tool

Beautiful variant of a German knife patented by Carl Hugo Müller.  I cannot find another one in any books on corkscrews, although there are similar examples in Peters' & Giulian's book Pocket Corkscrews and Pocketknives, illustrated in figures 1381, 1382 & 1488.  None, however, are quite the same, have as many tools, or display as much detail.

This example is marked on the tang of the master blade:

"P. HENCKELS SOLINGEN".

Also marked on the cellar motif handle scale:

"D.R.P. No. 89172".

Included are a corkscrew, master knife blade, blunt rounded end cigar box opening blade with a notch for lifting the cigar box nail, a screwdriver blade (on one end of the handle), and a hammer for a cigar box nail.  The nickel handles are decorated with bicycles on one side and a cellarman descending the stairs into a wine cellar, on the other.

Measures 3 1/4 inches when closed.  Little wear.  Includes its original leather pouch which does show some wear, but no major damage.  Beautiful knife!

Condition: 9/10.
