Brewers Gimlet

Code: 1635l

A beechwood handled brewer’s gimlet, also known as a spile gimlet.

Shorter and more robust than normal gimlets, the brewers gimlet was used to bore a vent hole in the bung to allow the contents to be drawn off.

This example has a barrel shaped beechwood handle which was also used to insert the ‘spile’ plug in the vent hole to reseal the barrel.

Previous owner's marks ‘H.BOND’ on the handle.

53/8 inches overall length.
