This set has 6 pieces in it none of them look like they were ever used. There was a little rust on some so I have cleaned it off and have made sure the leather case is conditioned. The knife still has the black lettering on the blade that is also a screwdriver, also both blades are sharp and show no signs of being sharped. They have a little discoloration from age. They are extremely tight to open and close like they have not been used. The wood has in gold lettering TL-29, there is a fine line of brass between the wood and stainless and it has brass pins holding it together. The little handle on the knife still has the flat marks where the. Formed, these would have worn off with use see the pictures. The pliers have just regular discoloration on them and no marks at all on the blades of the cutters. They move without any tightness at all. The scissors has rust on them, I cleaned them and they are now show the different colors. They move freely and the blade have no dents or dings in them. The tweezers also had rust on them and now show where I cleaned it off. They also show no signs of use and there are no dings or bends in the tip. The file had just a little bit of rust around the keeper piece. There is a small manufacturing flaw right at the tip. It has a soft wood handle. The screwdriver has some discoloration on the shaft and the handle shows no marks at all. The tip has no dings or marks on it. The case had on spot where the leather came un-stitched I still have the piece and it can be sewn back in. The outside of the case has several marks from being in an old cabinet and someone over the years has put ICTN on it in a few places. It has some spots from age and under the flap it is a lighter color. It measures 6 3/4″ by 4″ by 1 3/4 when all folded up. The case could use a little more conditioning but all of the holders inside are in very good condition. This is an amazing all original set. Every piece is hallmarked except the tweezers. They all dates between 1919 and 1928. We try to DESCRIBE & PICTURE every item to the best of our ability, but we are not experts. Please look closely at all the PHOTOS!
