Excellent pre-leatherman MT collection.   :salute:   :tu:   :hatsoff:

I'm thinking that lot must have taken some time & effort to amass.

They are still usable, but because the (back) springs slowly degrade, it's better to just leave them as pieces of art.
Some are also not great to hold, our (grand)parents must have had iron hands.
The most comfortable to hold are the Hoffritz Wrench and the Hubeo Pocket Tool.

Years.
Though the easiest to obtain were the Seaboard Steel tools, L'electric and DGM pliers. (most from eBay).
The others I've either seen once for sale or come around once a year or so on ebay/auction websites.
Don't be picky on the quality if you want to start collecting these. A better quality will come along for a cheaper price, you just have to be patient.

Price wise there is no good way to value them, some go for $20 others of the same quality go for $200. It's just too niche.
