Circa: Late 1800's
Condition: Good++
Manufacturer: E.C. SIMMONS Keen Kutter

This is a very rare, and collectible spiral ratchet screwdriver! It is marked "KEEN KUTTER E.C. SIMMONS" on the brass medallion on the end of the hardwood handle, and also marked "KEEN KUTTER PAT.DEC.18-1892" on the directional control sleeve. This screwdriver is not listed in the E.C. SIMMONS KEEN KUTTER COLLECTOR'S GUIDE by Jerry and Elaine Heuring, one of the most complete guides on the subject. It has several features including a removable slot driver bit in good+ condition, a chuck and threaded sleeve to hold the bit in place, very good condition, a slip sleeve so the user can hold that end of the screwdriver for support while turning the screw, also in great shape. Next is the lock down sleeve, that allows the user to lock down the spiral section and use the ratchet or lock feature only, works fine. Next is the direction control, this can be position in lock, right hand, or left hand positions, also works fine. Next is a good heavy steel ferrule that hold the handle in place. The handle is attached by two screws that are threaded into the handle and the metal ferrule. The handle is mounted very solid, as a good bit of the handle extends into the ferrule, yet we note a very minor amount of movement in the handle at the ferrule. Most likely the wood is very dry, and shrunk in size a very little bit. The hardwood handle has a nice old patina finish, nicely turned, we note a few minor hairline cracks in the handle, but also note it is very solid, and not crack through, no chips off of it, some small dings and stains, looks old as it should. Fitted on the end point of the handle is a brass medallion, with a nice KEEN KUTTER logo, the same logo used by E.C. SIMMONS in the late 1800's. This screw driver is 16.25" fully extended, not including the tip, and 11.5" long overall in the locked down position, from chuck to handle end. The tip extends another 2" out from the chuck tip. We thought we had seen or owned most all the ratchet screwdriver types from the 1800's, but this one surprised us! It's in good++ condition, no rust or damage, nicely marked, works as it was designed to work! Rare!
