This is a vintage 1980's Eberle Company Bottle Opener / Can Opener and Corkscrew - stainless steel bottle cap opener at top, steel can opener on side of handle, and fist pulls off to reveal the brass corkscrew - the wood handle is bi-color natural Brazilian Rosewood carved into the shape of an arm and fist. The fingernails are small brass embellishments and thre are two aluminum rings, one on wrist area, the other at bottle opener end.
-- Made in Brasil by the Abramo Eberle Company - circa late 1980's
** This gesture is known as a "fig" and is used in Brazil to invoke good luck (your thumb between your index and middle fingers while making a fist).
