W. Schollhorn Corp, W. Bernard Combined Pliers and Cutter
A recent BBS thread about the PlieRench prompted me to take a closer look at an old wrench hiding in the corner of one of my toolboxes I had long ignored.
Close inspection of the stampings revealed "Bernard's pat July 19, 1892" and "W. Schollhorn New Haven Conn" around the hinge points. Also a 'running dog' logo with the word "Bernard" inside is stamped on the handle.
No patent numbers, but a patent search turned up No. 479,113 dated July 19, 1892 for a "Combined Pliers and Cutter"
Features include formed steel metal handles (not solid) and jaws which open parallel. Most of the nickel plating is long worn away on my pliers, as is the diamond cross-hatching on the handle. It's about 5 inches long.
