Vintage Multi Tools
« on: December 14, 2018, 04:36:18 AM »
This is a couple of multi tools I purchased recently. Both were manufactured 50+ ars ago in France. The pruner is marked E.J. Coles on the blade, Depose near the nut, and made in France on the tang of the largest blade. I purchased the pruners from someone in Michigan.  A web search indicates EJ Coles may be a retailer in Canada that was bought out in 1928?

The adjustable wrench is marked Seaboard Steel Co on the blade and Made in France on the tang of the knife blade.

Nice finds.  There used to be a site on the net that listed a large variety of multitools.  I haven't been able to find it again after several attempts.  Does anyone remember that site or know how to bring it up?

Hi Dan, Around $15 each including shipping. For the age and condition I feel like I got good deals.
