I have found a small (3.5 x 1.5 in) brass and leather "book" - containing a set of tools that slide out after sliding off the top edge of book. I am very curious as to what this set of tools might be for. I originally thought sewing, but there's a small file, and no needle, etc. Does anyone know what this might be used for. Scissors, a hinged piece of flat bamboo, a narrow file, and some things that I can't identify at all! Any help is appreciated. Completely baffled!!
