Vintage Mikov Shell Puller Pocket Knife.
A nice folding pocket knife with a stag horn antler handle and an integrated shotgun shell puller. The cartridge extractor has two gauge sizes, 12 and 16, to remove spent cartridges. It has a strong blade locking mechanism with a release spring to close the 8cm blade. This is a good multipurpose knife also fitted with a saw, screw driver, bottle opener, tin opener and cork screw. A great knife suited to shooting sport, deer stalking, hunting, camping and forest activities. A nicely weighted knife made by Mikov, Czecho, Slovakia.
Early shotguns were not fitted with extractors and once fired the cartridges often got stuck. As they were hot it was not recommended to remove them with your fingers so knife manufactures began to make pocket knives with built-in extractors with different gauge sizes.
