Cigar Box Hammer

J.A. Henckels is a Solingen, Germany based knife manufacturer that dates back to 1731. The company's Zwilling (twin) logo is known to be one of the oldest trademarks in the world. Throughout the company's history, it has made some of the world's finest pocket knives, kitchen knives, scissors & flatwear. In 1960 Henckels ceased their pocket knife production and started having other companies make knives for them on contract. Boker has been one of the main producers of more recent Henckels products.

Cigar Box Hammer

Postby outkast » Sat Aug 26, 2017 7:09 pm

I've been wanting this piece for sometime now and finally made an offer and today it became part of my Henckels cigar collection. I think it really makes the collection but I have this feeling I'm missing a few sizes on the double cutters and so the hunt continues.

To the best of my knowledge non hammer end is used for cutting the paper around the box as well as removing the nail. The hammer end would be used for tapping the nail back in to secure the lid and also removing the nail.

Cool hammer and nice collection!
If I have seen further it is by standing on the shoulders of giants.
