The "gimlet" has a screw on the end and was intended to be used to remove broken pieces of friction primers from the vent. It could also serve as a priming wire to poke a hole in the powder bag. This is in excellent condition. Stamped just below the loop is, “WATERVLIET  U.S.  12..  M” indicating it was manufactured at Watervliet Arsenal for a 12-inch mortar.  The loop measures 2.25 inches in diameter and the overall length is 24 inches.  The pick end is twisted with a sharpened edge as you would find on a drill bit.  This implement retains its original arsenal applied blue finish without any corrosion or pitting.
