This is a wooden box filled with tools. Most are for engraving. The longest carving tool in the box is 7.5". The metal compass is 6.25". There is a great little tiny oil can.

Several pieces, including files are incised "Renard France". 10 wooden handles and one wooden piece with a slat with another piece of wood going through it. The rest are metal tools and scraps of metal.

The wood can be polished and cleaned as well as the metal. I will leave that decision to the new owner because I don't know whether someone will want to use or display them.

The count is a bit rough because every time we try, we aren't sure if the thinnest pieces are actually some kind of tool or sticks of metal. There are approximately 25-28 pieces, plus scraps.

Everything is small scale., but very sturdy. Please see the images to get the best notion of the contents of this box.

The least the age the tools could be is about 42 years old, but they could be considerably older. Sorry that we cannot be more specific.

The box itself is a cigar box...it is not an original box that the tools came in.
One of the wooden-handled tools has a blade with a #6 on it.
One blade has a #7, another a #12, one #14. One blade says Nicholson USA...xf.
The compass says, I believe Plaid 6 Made in USA.
My husband's assessment is that many of the pieces are hand made...sort of custom for a specific set of tasks.
They are lovely and a wonderful collection for someone who can best appreciate their utility.

We pack VERY carefully!

No musty or stale odor whatsoever.

We'll ship internationally as well. Please be so kind as to let us know your country for shipping rates outside of the U.S. We'll get back to you as soon as we can with the information.

Since there are different costs to ship different items depending on weight, etc., we feel the fairest thing to do for everyone is to quote combinations as they are requested.
