I don't have a good story about the screwdriver, but I have had a hard time finding any information or explanation about the "Wings". I assume the wings are for extra leverage to turn the screwdriver, but besides that I am curious to know who made them and if there was a specific application. The picture attached is a grab from Ebay where I recently found another winged screwdriver that looks just like mine.
