I'm going to move it over to the Collector's Forum since it has very little to do with Leatherman!.  Seems we have had some info on grooming kits like this one some time ago.  I would suggest though, that anything stamped SOLINGEN likely isn't rubbish.

This doesn't look like a grooming kit to me.  Looks more like a multi-use tool kit.

I like the looks of it, looks like a great find to me.

Yes, I meant that there were grooming kits that were made similar to this one!  Call me unhygenic if you like, but I'm not sure I want to groom any part of myself with a saw!   :o

I've seen them before, even mad ones with little hammer head attachments.  I've put the odd bid in on them on eBay just out of curiosity but they always sell well.

There are English variations on the same theme but the quality isn't the same at all.

Neat bit of kit you got there gav! :tu:  I've seen these interchangable blade knife sets with several different Solingen maker's logos. The older ones are nickel plated steel. The ones from about 1970 onward are stainless steel.

None actually. :-\  My interests lean more to the "tool" side, and these old kits seem a little more "knifey."

Oh yah!! :tu:

Some interchangable blades for where the glass breaker attaches would be great!
