Nice additions to your collection Kart! :tu: I especially liked this photo:


New set:

As a lad, I remember my father always having a similar-looking bottle opener on his key ring. He used to let me play with it from time to time. Then, when I was older and just starting to train as a machinist, I made my own out of stainless steel. I still have it today :)

That's sweet Bob!  Work in a set of pliers and a screwdriver and we could really be on to something!

I have all of the last post scattered around the house and cellar. The second one is my favourite one.

You know what stands out to me most in that picture? It's the "non-standard" rate of twist on the corkscrews :P Seems like all corkscrews in the western world use the same diameter wire, are the same length, and have the same rate of twist. :think: Go ahead and try a Vic mini-screwdriver in any misc corkscrews you might have about the house if you don't believe me.


By the way, nice picture Kart! :cheers:

I guess this is the right thread for this.  I found this set last weekend at a military vehicle show/swap meet for $5.  I figured that it was perfect for keeping in my bag for work.  We're always scrambling for knives and forks at lunch. 



The holder/bottle/can opener is marked "NSB-80 BUND" , and the utensils are marked "OFW 81 BUND" .  Anyone have an idea who this set was made for?  I'm thinking it's German, but not 100% sure.

There's no such thing as "Too pretty to carry".  There's only "Too pretty NOT to carry"...... >:D

My guess would be the Bundesweh-Besteck as well. Produced by several different companies, AFAIK. Example: http://www.edelrid.de/en/sports/products/cooking-technologies/bundeswehr-besteck.html

Cool, I've never seen "vertical" can openers before. Smart way to get loads of leverage. The first one in your post was especially neat.  :tu:

I really like the pictures of your collection, Kart!

Kart;

Do you know what your items are worth? I've seen several of these before (my wife is affiliated with an auction house) and was wondering if you'd be okay with me showing this thread to some people there. I have no interest in buying, but it might help with collection / insurance purposes. If you'd like, I can keep this information between you and I. As I know a lot of the people there, there would be no fee (they'll be looking at your photos, not handling the items).

This is gonna hurt...

Sorry for my english.
My photos published in this forum for you to peruse. I see no problem to read them by someone else. If you need my help with the evaluation of such things, I'm not a great expert in this, although I can share information, at what price acquired this or that subject.
