Strange "Sheffield made" knife

Recommended Posts

I have this pocket knife that is simply marked "Sheffield made " and nothing else. 

It has that spanner which seems so specific to only one size nut, but what is it for?  A cyclists knife? 

I have seen one online stamped John Milner, Sheffield - the exact same knife but no indication of age or use. 

Any ideas? And thank you in advance.

 I was given one , years ago,  as an all purpose pocket knife...complete with amongst others... a bottle opener, file,drill, corkscrew and even a tool for extracting stones from horses hooves! I believe they are now made in China.

I did have something similar some time ago but one of the blades was a small two pronged fork and there were two sizes of spanner, I think it was described as a picnic / cyclists knife or something like that.

Here is one described as sportsman's knife bike knife for sale at £100.00 which doesn't look in as good a condition as yours.    ------------       https://www.etsy.com/uk/listing/537866676/jhon-milner-rare-sportsmans-knife-bike

That's the one stamped John Milner, Sheffield  - I can't find any info on him or this pattern of knife ...
