Just £45 folks ;)

I got something a bit similar a while back. They had it as a one off, it was also dated late 1800s but shows more signs of wear. Looks a lot more distinctive though so I'm very happy. I'll get some pics of it at some point.

Dont be silly Moon they didnt have date stamps back then, its written on the box ;)


Seriously tho, these things are TOOLS simple as that, they most likely aint going to last from the 1800's as they are quite easily replaced (cheap to replace), Btw if anyone wants one with a date stamp or etch tell me i can even get them from the future if you like :>
