Primary ExaminerTravis S. McGehee ABSTRACT: My invention relates to devices and accessories for and with Line Holder-Cutter Handtool Combination Means; in the order of:

a. An improvement in a multipurpose safety sport or fishermans knife, purposed for shell-shucking clams, oysters and shellfish, including the dressing of fish generally.

1). An extensional means, having a safety proviso means for engaging said safety-knife means in a slot hole tie hook elevated operational utility, for the large assortment of sizes of said shelled bivalves.

DEVICES AND ACCESSORIES FOR AND WITH LINE HOLDER-CUTTER HANDTOOL COMBINATION The invention or inventions relate to my other invention, titled; Line Holder" granted US. Pat. No. 2,532,394 dated Dec. 5, I950 BRIEF SUMMARY The principal object of this invention, after many years of research and experimentation is to overcome by improvement the antiquated, cumbersome, unsanitary and dangerous methods still in use concurrently; adding a multiplicity of uses including tool means in combination, meeting the many emergencies found in marine, field and in the household.

Another object of this invention, is to provide a multipurpose safety knife and tool means which will be found simpler, inexpensive, easily mass produced and attractively marketable.

Another object of this invention is to provide a safety-knife means which will act independently, or in combination with an extensional cube easily fastened on a suitable support and engagingly coact for additional usages, for and with the form of chopping blocks usually found about the household.

BRIEF DESCRIPTION Further objects and advantages of this invention as well as its construction arrangement and operational means, will be apparent from the following drawings and description, in which:

FIG. 1 is a face view on portioned phantom view, related combination tool means as an embodiment for clarity of illustration, indicating attachment of an extensional device with proviso for engaging safety-knive means.

FIG. 2 is a isometric view of extension cube or device clearly indicating slot hole proviso, for engaging said safetyknive means.

FIG. 3 is a side view indicating multipurpose safety-knive means.

FIG. 4 is a side view with a portion omitted for clarity of illustration, indicating operational use of said safety-knive means separating or shell-shucking a bivalve, in the order of a clam.

FIG. 5 is a side view with a portion omitted for clarity of illustration, indicating operational use of piercer-prodder of said safety-knive means about to separate or shell-shuck a oysters mantles and shells for edibles.

FIG. 6 is a side elevational view with a portion of said safetyknive means omitted for clarity of illustration, indicating operational means for separating edibles from a conch or welk, by sawing at conical end to break vacummated area found helpful and necessary to extract innards from waste materials.

FIG. 7 is a side view with a portion omitted for clarity of illustration, indicating said safety knive as being stored in a sheath or cover with locking means proviso.

DESCRIPTION OF THE PREFERRED EMBODIMENTS In the present embodiments of the invention hereinafter described in greater detail.

FIG. I and referenced numeral 10 in partial phantom view, indicates line holder-cutter handtool means embodiment with proviso means 33 attaching extension clip 33A while angled brackets 33YY are firmly secured to proviso holes 36 with push-lock plate or red 33Y in position, while FIG. 2 indicates extension clip 33X with slot hole proviso 31A and 33A respectively for engaging said knife means.

FIG. 3 clearly shows said multipurpose safety-knive means 40 with handle 41, piercer prodder 42 with safety area 42AA integrally combining tie hook 43 which is followed by scaler scraper (sawtoothed) 47 followed with (fine-toothed) 48 and plain (finger edge) 46A and safety locking means 50AA with driver-pryer 47A and basel piercer prodder is followed by as sociated piercer cutters 4 and 45 respectively, whereby one is partly pointed and the other partly rounded and both followed in that order with another cutter which is plain and numbered 46, and FIG. 4 indicates operational view showing piercer prodder 42 inserted into umbo or muscle area 42AA with tie hook 43 in arresting position avoiding possible injury with said safety-knive means 40 whereby coactingly a continued clockwise pressured motion cuts and shucks through area 49AA, of said clam 49A.

FIG. 5 indicates another operation with a oyster 49B whereby piercer prodder has entered at top section 42CC and then directing piercer cutter 44 in clockwise rotation to complete mantle and shell-shucking means, and FIG. 6 indicates operational means for parting the innards of meats of a conch or welk 49C whereby, sawing and cutting at conical edge of shell at 49CC with said safety-knive means 40 at positions 47 and 48 which is required to break vacuumated inner area, which is followed by insertions of piercer prodder 42 to force out edibles, while in some instances tapping at cut portion with driver pryer 47A of FIG. 3 may be required to extract waste materials, if shell is needed collectively, while at FIG. 7 portioned view indicates said safety-knive means 40 stored in a sheath or cover 50 and secured by locking means 50A with partial channel ring 50AA while positioned at 49A and 50A and enclosure finally locked by locking lever button 4988.

Having described my invention what I claim for Unite States Letters Patent is: coarse curved I. A combination cutting tool comprising a handle and a blade attached to said handle, said blade having on one edge thereof a fine sawtoothed portion and a coarse sawtoothed sealer-scraper portion, the opposite edge thereof having a series of piercing elements and a cutting section, the blade terminating in an elongated, curved piercer-prodder portion having a rounded end.

2. The combination as defined in claim 1, wherein the portion of the handle opposite that to which the blade is attached has a driver-pryer portion extending therefrom.

3. The combination as defined in claim I, said blade including a tie hook disposed adjacent the safety-locking area and terminal end thereof, an extension clip adapted to be mounted on a related tool means or on a suitable support and having two openings therein, one adapted to accommodate the knife blade and the other adapted to receive the tie hook.

4. The combination as defined in claim I wherein said cutting section of the blade comprises a partly rounded portion and a plain sharpened portion.
