It was discontinued after 2004. The retail price was $39.95.

"With the flood of pocket tools getting larger and more complicated, we thought it was time to get down to basics. The A. G. Russell Tool is an update of a German patented tool made 60-80 years ago. We re-made the tooling using modern methods and materials. We replaced the leather punch with a Phillips screwdriver and added a serrated edge to one side of the screwdriver blades. This is one tool that can be used without pinching your fingers, and the spring loaded pliers make your work much easier. Measures 4-3/4" closed, is less than 1/2" thick and made entirely of stainless steels. Weighs 4.5 oz. Pouch not included."
