Old 50's

Reprofiled the main blade, hard to tell it's 1/4" shorter. Turned small blade into a flat Phillips. Got rid of saw. Used new 91mm scissors with old saw spring and custom brass spacer. Corkscrew is from a modern Wenger. Awl tip needed work to restore shape and straightness. Needed to reprofile the saw spring to work with scissors. Scales were a bugger to get off, some damage occurred. All pivots were 2.2mm through whole knife. Had to grind down toothpick and tweezers to fit the narrower than current slots.
