Triple Threat Tool
on: February 13, 2024, 02:20:51 AM
    I was looking through a bucket filled with stuff and found these two keychain tools.  They will be very familiar to the older members here.  My mother carried one like this every day on her keys.  I think the one she carried was marked Trim.  These were little multi-tools that came fastened to a cardboard display.  I used to see them in little gas stations and barber shops.  Price was about 59 cents or so. 
    There are no back-springs in these.  The case is nickel plated steel.  You could actually cut things with the knife blades.  The files are not aggressive at all.  Think nail files.  One blade is marked USA on both.  They are not exactly alike.  The older one has an address on the back.  The newer has an advertisement.  I think I might have a couple more of these things?  These are just a little longer than a Classic and really rather useful.  They were just common as dirt years ago.  Best wishes.  Gary

Trim Trio.  Everyone had one 40 - 50 years ago.  Lots of them were given away with company names on them.
