Ridgid still makes jawless wrenches.
We use this one.

This one is pretty much identical to your Trimo.

I have the ridgid hex wrench. Both of those are half the size of my trimo.



Also, my trimo is special, almost as special as me

I have like 7+ of those. That is likely post ww2. They are usually called "auto" wrenches because for included them in tool kits with their model A, T, etc, vehicles. The ford versions have a squareish nub off the tail for unscrewing oil plugs or something.

same here, over the years I have just ended up with a bucket full of those type wrenches, I cant remember the last time using them for anything..
its strange to see the obsoletion of tools as time goes by, how many old plumbing tools used 50, 60 or 80 years ago are still used now..or if we have ever seen what they even looked like...and what will be the next tool to go extinct???

Hardly, We still plumb some houses in copper. Baseboard is done in copper a lot too. So many houses have copper and while it can be a pain sometimes not to burn a house down, when a fitting in a bad spot leaks sometimes you can't fit press or crimp tools in that space where a torch will fit without opening more wall.





I think the torch would go before the cutter. Propress breathed new life into copper pipe and that copper pipe will get repaired at times with a torch because of space constraints. Also, even when we do jobs in propress there are some joints we sweat because they have almost no nipple between fittings and if one joint leaked we would have to cut out a bunch of fittings.
