Description:
A pliers type tool with a secondary pivoted jaw. It combines pipe wrench, pliers, wire cutter, nail puller, screwdriver, hammer and nut wrench functions.

A known 2 5/8" long example marked, "SECURED BY PATENT MARCH 19 1895 W. THOMPSON." appears to be a wire cutter / gripper that has also been described a wire wheel spoke nipple wrench.

A "full size" example marked only with the patent date appears as no. 930 in "Antique and Unusual Wrenches" by Schulzes. A view from the other side of the tool is shown on pg. 227 of Jack Devitt's "Ohio Toolmakers and Their Tools."

Corresponding Canadian patent no CA-51,221 was issued May 8, 1896.
