Apparently designed to be helpful in and around the kitchen, the Crown Corker has a large number of "other features" to assist in cooking, canning and preparation of food. It was made in England. When and by whom is unknown.
Shear jaws are rather heavy and blunt, not suited for cutting paper. The jaws are spring-loaded, and are made integral with the handles.
Handles are each a bent channel of heavy gauge steel. Not stainless steel, they appear to be nickel plated.
A large number of complex profiles are cut into the handles, each one intended for a different task. The task names are stamped nearby.
Also stamped in large font is the name CROWN CORKER, as well as the words MADE IN ENGLAND and BRITT. PATT APP. No 13765
The Crown Corker has no folding blades or tools.
The tool is stamped in many places with the name of a nearby function that is incorporated into the handles. Note that the top side and bottom side of the tool have different functions in them. (see photos)
