    I purchased this Walle-Hawk Survival Tool in the 1970s. The tool and the manual fit into the vinyl pouch. It is unused and never carried. Does it have any value or collectibility?

    The survival tool on Ebay is not a Walle-Hawk although it is being called that. The Ebay survival tool is unlike the original. I believe the use of the Walle-Hawk designation is just a marketing ploy.

    Well, yours is pretty nifty looking Clermont.
    I have no idea of value, but I'm intrigued.

    That's very interesting. Can you shed any light on the purposes of the various cutouts and edges? A pretty long list of functions for some rather non obvious (to me) object.

    The one on ebay is a very common imported gadget, similar to yours. But cheaper. I have one that was apparently some giveaway swag associated with a movie, "The Day After tomorrow", I believe. I guess tying into the end-of-the-world theme of the movie. And dealextreme.com sells them two for $3.
