I like tools. With a tool I can make something better ( or attempt). While on a recent pick trip I was rummaging thru a junk box. Found a handy crow bar/pry bar. I even commented to my friend on how sharp the edges were. A tool used to demolish should show signs of extensive wear. While in my picking mode I didn’t think anything about it and threw it in my want pile. Not until I returned home did I discover my handy pry tool had words embossed on the handle “Mellor NO.1 Box Opener”. Really, no blade? You guessed it . The tool was made for opening wooden grocery boxes. Early 1900’s with the expanded use of corrugated paper boxes. The definition of box openers was changed. I am not saying the Mellor NO. 1 is a museum find but a quaint reminder of a different time.
