Bernard Levine. The scan on the far right is from a 1912 Joseph Rodgers & Sons catalog.
The design was patented in 1900 (RD 354051) and manufactured before and after World War I. A folding spear point blade and tin opener are housed in one handle of the wire cutter. A latch prevents the wire cutter from opening when not in use. There were several variations of this pattern. The example shown in the photo has a bail attached to the latch. In the drawing from the 1912 catalog, the bail is attached directly to the pivot pin. During World War II, three hacksaw blades and a screwdriver were added for use as an "escape knife".
