Another fine product of Solingen craftsmanship, this multi-purpose plier tool is very similar to the slightly more common Abercrombie & Fitch Multi-Tool. It has no folding blades or tools. Instead, a number of different functions and features are integrated into the plier head and handles.
At the very base of the jaws is an offset notch for cutting hard wire, fishing hooks, etc.
The action pivots on a large T-headed bolt. Opening the pliers part way aligns a T-slot in the other handle, allowing the two halves to be taken apart. This facilitates cleaning, independent usage of the handle features, etc.
There are a number of added functions incorporated into the handles, described below.
Halfway along one handle there is a sharpening stone, glued into place. Just below it is a hole drilled through for a lanyard. (A leather lanyard with brass clip was included with the tool.)
One of the plier jaws has fish scaler notches running along the edge. The other jaw has a rounded, sharp area along a portion of the edge. Presumably, this sharp area was intended to be used as a small chopping hatchet.
This same jaw also has a blunt area for hammering small nails, tent stakes, etc.
Embossed into the leather flap was >TELL< company logo, and the name "))Sportsman's-Aid((".
