    Was walking through the tool section at the local flea market and happened to stumble upon this. It seemed like a pretty cool little gadget so I asked how much.. He said $1 so I figured WTH and bought it. Any further information if anyone knows about it would be cool.

    It's stamped with "Japan" on the hammer part.
    (Not very good stamp)

    Came in a little "genuine pigskin" Noymer pouch, also made in Japan.

    And here is a picture with it opened.

    This was the only one he had or I would have bought a few of them. It's used and the flathead is slightly bent but I can hammer it out. Not to mention, it has to different flatheads on there.

    I think it's from spyderco's byrd line. I have one I received several years ago with a couple of the first Byrd knives. I have used it but never found the form very conducive to daily carry.

    You definitely pointed me in the right direction. After looking it up, it looks to possibly be a knockoff (or variation) of the "Spyderco Harp." The Spyderco version has a corkscrew, mine does not.

    It is a Spyderco knock-off.

    Holy... I'd love to have one of those just to have one. Probably wouldn't use it, but it looks like a fun tool. Not to mention it'd be a great conversation starter (at least to me!)

    A wee bit google investigating sayin that harp design is the original multitool, been around since 1880.

    Image is from 1917 and is on a site called the multi tool museum.

    Parcel hook has been around since 1880 and SAK lovers are still trying to figure it out

    Very cool!
    It's funny how we sometimes look at modern tools as new and original, but if you look around you can find similar ideas from the early 1900's and late 1800's. My great grandfather was a carpenter and a pastor that to help ends meet would sometimes sell things door to door. I have an early 1900's adjustable socket wrench that he had tried selling for awhile. They are everywhere now, but this thing is really solid. I like seeing older visions of modern multitools. Thanks for the pics!

    My 2 cents it looks like it was meant for a piano or an organ.
