A so called “stock knife” (or “stockkniv” in swedish). It once belonged to a “vindragare”, which literally means “a puller of wine”. The stock knife was their universal tool and used for everything from breaking up barrels to scrape paint and labels from bottles. The “wine pullers” were a category of transport workers who once had the exclusive right to transport liquid goods in Stockholm. Their duties included transport of not only wine and spirits, but also other forms of liquids such as oil, mineral water and kerosene. The real blow was the state alcohol monopoly that was introduced in 1917, which meant that private wine imports almost completely ceased. They lasted until 1930 when they finally dissolved.
