Kistner’s Combination Tool

From an 1883 issue of Scientific American:

A novel combination tool has been patented by Mr. Harry U. Kistner, of Bordentown, N. J.  This implement is one of those useful articles which almost every person has occasion to use very often.  The same handle accommodates a number of tools, among which are a cork screw, gimlet, skate sharpener, etc.

Interesting. I wonder what that might look like. With a quick Google Patent search… We have Kistner’s Combination Tool.

Well, the fold out corkscrew would be reason enough to add it to the collection! Do you have an 1883 Kistner Combination Tool?
