Picked up this funky little thing today at the local garbage tip. Thought it had something military to it, and turns out my thoughts were right.
At first look I thought it was some kind of gravity knife, cause I could here something rattle inside, but it turned out to be some else.
First took it appart, and noticed it had a small blade on the inside and an oil container in the top. Got home and had a look on google, and it turns out to be a French rifle cleaning kit with a screwdriver that one could place on the front.
It is discribed as a "outil de nettoyage pour armes de poilu 1914-1918" for a Lebel rifle model 1892. Never seen one before, but after looking a bit futher they do show up for sale here an there.
Funky little object, I'll give it a clean a and bit of oil and it will go in the vitrine with other French ww 1 stuff.
Hope you like it, and another object saved from the garbage!
