Brewers Gimlet by SKELTON

Code: 1414a

A boxwood handled brewer’s gimlet, also known as a spile gimlet, by C T SKELTON of Sheffield.

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 boxwood handle which was also used to insert the ‘spile’ plug in the vent hole to reseal the barrel.

Marked ‘CT SKELTON & CO’ on one side of the handle.

5 inches overall length.
