Could be a Hope or Royce, see RB thread below.viewtopic.php?p=2052271
Based on the tool ?
Nope. Hope have hope in big letters on the side. Royce are silver and have Royce on the side.
As far as I know, the locking is wrong too.
I was basing it on the locking mechanism, which is similar. I cant find the thread of the one that needed the tool and prompted the tool making thread.
I've just seen one or two examples on the web you're correct FluffyChicken, Royce and Hope have their name stamped on the side.
I suppose the only way to be sure is to take it out and have a look.
No matter how bad it gets... it could always be worse.
