A rare fishing tool, a lock fast joint tool designed to secure and tighten the lockfast joints on split cane fishing rods.

The tool has nine different sized holes to cope with all the joint sizes that can be found on the sections of fishing rods. Made of aluminium and stamped with makers details, 'Wm. Robertson, Fishing Tackle, Glasgow, C2.' on one side and 'Brown Robertson Lock Joint Tool, Prov: Patent No. 12722' on the other. The tool is in original condition and can still be used today.
