The tools are two knife blades, a champagne wire cutting hook, a button hook, leather punch, a corkscrew, a fixed screwdriver to one end and a belt clip ring to the other. The two knife blades are a little short due to wear and tear. Both the engraved side covers are a little pitted, but otherwise all is complete and in good and working order.
