Interesting. Kinda looks look a 10 in 1 for carving. Looks like the chuck is missing.

Nevermind. If that outer shell screws onto the chuck jaws you just put a bit in and tighten the outer shell and go to work.

What Fridge sez.. multi-tip screwdriver. Lots of companies made similar designs.

I was gonna say it could be a jeweler’s “all-in-one” kit. But yeah, multi-tool is pretty much the same thing.

From the bits it looks like a leather working tool. The “V” bit is used to shape the edges, like on a leather belt.

That is one of the earliest multi-tools I have ever seen.
So cool.
