To all whom it may concern:
Be it known that I, Otto Kampfe, a citizen of the United States, residing at the borough of Brooklyn, in the county of Kings, city and State of New York, have invented an Improvement in Pocket Implements, of which the following is a specification.
My invention relates to a combination tool or handy implement particularly adapted for use by men both personally and in men's clubs and by means of which handy tool the lid of a cigar box may be opened by lifting the nail holding the same and then closed by driving the nail back to place. A cigar taken from the box may have one end cut off, the cap or stopper of a bottle may be removed and the cork thereof then pulled, and the implement may also be used as a pocket-knife.
In carrying out my invention, the case of the implement may be integral or made as the ordinary case of a pocket-knife, and said implement has alining holes made through the sides and a blade mounted in the case is adapted upon pressure to move across between these openings, forming a cigar cutter.
One or more blades are pivoted to the case at one end and occupy a recess in one side and a cork-screw is pivoted to the case at the opposite side and occupies a recess therein.
An arm device, or extension, is formed at one end of the handle or pivoted thereto; this is provided with a nail puller and hammer head and an engaging edge adapted to be brought in, contact with the edge of the metal cap of a bottle to remove the same. This latter arm device may bear a fixed or movable relation to the handle.

I claim as my invention :—
1. The combination with a pocket knife handle, of a pivoted extension adapted to be turned into the recess of said handle or to be opened outwardly and having a shoulder to limit the pivotal movement in one direction when the handle is used as a lever, said extension having a curved portion formed at one termination into lifting claws, the portion nearer the pivot having an engaging lip extending into the concavity of the curved portion at its other termination, the reverse side of the curved portion serving as a fulcrum for the claws when the handle is used as a lever, and the claws serving as a fulcrum when said handle is used as a lever to operate the engaging lip.
2. The combination with a pocket knife handle, of a part forming an extension from one end of the handle, said extension having ® curved portion formed at one termination into lifting claws, the portion nearer the handle having an engaging lip extending into the concavity of the curved portion at its other termination, the reverse side of the curved portion serving as a fulcrum for the claws when the handle is used as a lever, and the claws serving as a fulcrum when the handle is used as a lever to operate the engaging lip.
