    Think it's a tourist item, set of nails clippers in a slot on the left, wee 3-blade multi-tool fixed into the pouch on the right - bottle-opener/screwdriver, knife, nail-file. Couple of holes for adding a lanyard. You can have it if you want? :thumbsup:

    To modify Johnny Cash's song... "How high's the snow Poppa? He said 'It's 2 feet high & risin'..."

    I dumped corn and seed right outside my patio door and the geese / deer are feeding right there. I'll try to get a pic of the deer if they come in again. The cat is not sure what to do with a bird that big... notice he is hiding behind the drift LoL :D

    It upsets me when browsing yard sales, garage sales, flea markets, antique malls and especially online when you see a great old knife (Ulster, Richards, Utica, Imperial, etc.) that you would like to own but the seller has it priced at $129 and you know it's worth $30 to $50 max. So that poor knife is going to sit there forever because the person has no idea what it's actually worth or maybe worse, somebody who is even more clueless will buy it and try to sell it for more! o_O:( I love it when I make a generous offer online and the person will counter by taking a $1 off. I generally do not reply back and leave it for what it is. :p:thumbsdown:

    Looks like a Trim-Trio. I have one that's riveted into a leather swinging cover with advertising.

    I have 11 of them, including three ersatz ones with screw driver/bottle openers differently shaped from the originals. Yours has a differently shaped sd/cl, so probably not a Trio by Trim. Three of mine have Trim stamped on the handle, three have trim-trio, one has oxford chemicals, and one has nothing. The 8 are tang-stamped with Bassett/Derry CT/Made in USA or Bassett/USA/Patented pat #. Also a two-digit number like 72 or 96.
    Two of the ersatz are tang-stamped usa in fine print on the sd/cl, one is totally unmarked.
    More than you asked, but I'm guessing yours was USA-made, too. Though just because I've never seen a foreign made one around here doesn't mean they don't exist elsewhere. Or even here, come to that.

    I just noticed the ersatzes don't have the separate key-chain hole.

    I remember my dad sitting in the kitchen showing off the first Trim-Trio. Probably 69 cents, sharp off the card, rugged and low maintenance. Back then everybody needed a bottle opener, and there it was. He must have bought a pocketful, and we all carried them for years.
    So I tend to buy one whenever I see it.
