and the Phillips screwdriver is odd at first, but I believe it was designed to mate with a Bear accessory drive kit (which no dealer I've been to has ever carried).

I don't know if they have them in stock but the coupler kit I found here:
http://www.countryknives.com/store/product.asp?sku=B155C&dept_id=109  or http://tinyurl.com/3sxxoq 

On Bear's site they list the 155EL as locking and sites I've visited do state all implements lock. I really like this tool, though I can't handle one in-person. The Phillips looks good, though I might grind down the squared bottom to provide a little more reach room. This might be the illusive multi with outside-opening tools and a great Phillips driver I've been looking for!  :gimme:  Bladematrix.com is showing $44.38 for the 155EL Electrician's model. Unknown if it's the updated model or the older one but a phone call might tell me this.

I just got the Toolzall Maintenance Pro by Crescent (Bear and Son) It looks like the Bear Gardener and Bird Shears only difference is it has a file (which has been replaced with a PST II diamond file ::) was a very easy mod the tools interchange very easily :)

It does seem to be a strong tool and I like it's quality  :cheers:

I may have to track down and try some other Bear Jaw tools  :D

I didn't really have time for a call to Bear & Sons so I emailed them this morning about dealers in my area. Still no reply. I just may go with the 155EL from Bladematrix. Besides, it's a write-off.  :)

Odd that Bear doesn't even have a photo of the Electrician (155EL) on its website.

I just got a Super Bear Jaws Sportsman 157SM it's just like my Maintenance Pro Toolzall by Crescent except it has a hook thingy instead of the file.  It is very well built as well :cheers:

I just checked out the electrician model at a pawn shop here in Idaho. The quality is fantastic and I would have bought it except it had a price tag of $65.

FWIW, I totally forgot I had emailed them... but I never received any response from B&S about local dealers in NJ.  Also, I'd like to see a review of the newer versions of B&S multis. Anyone?

Don't know if this matters but.................................

In Lebanon Missouri on 44 at the same exit as Shepherd Hills Cutlery there is an indoor fleamarket/antique mall on the other side of the over pass. It has been three years since I have been down that way in a big truck, butr I used to stop there all the time. Inside the mall is a HUGE display of Bear and Son's goods. I never purchased anything, but I rememebr the prices bieng reasonable and the selection of Bear products bieng quite diverse.

Hope this helps. Maybe they have an online thing for those interested in their products.

Anyone know of a place in the San Francisco Bay area that sells these?  The 155EL especially.

Yeah, its a "bird hook." The instructions say to poke it into the "vent hole" of the bird, spin it around, then pull out the entrails. Ugh! :P

Where exactly on a bird's anatomy is the "vent hole" located?

Is this a one-way vent hole with a check valve that we're talking about here?  :D

I never really needed an excuse not to be a hunter, but should the issue come up in future, I'll now have one ready-to-go.


I don't have my anal alimentary canal remover with me!


(I'm sure some helpful chap will simply offer me his, but I'm not sure if that's the kind of tool you share between friends)

Bob didnt we have enough of that thing in Maine. I mean really it wasnt a very good seller. They had a whole rack of them.

Plus I still would have a sympathy pain if I ever used one on my buck.
