Bottom bracket lockring tool

So... old style Shimano bb in 1988 Raleigh Randonneur. Tired of using a stout screwdriver and mallet on the lockring. So looking for a recommendation for a decent tool for this rather than a basic 'C' spanner?
 
Why?

You should definitely find the old all in one multi spanner at flea market or boot fair. When they are on of course. Small mallet a d screwdriver work perfectly too though as long as you don't batter the living daylights out of it.

And that's just the screwdriver.

Thanks guys, probably over thinking this so will replace my mislaid C spanner.

If it's a real Shimano one, it has six cutouts and there is a special £20 tool.

They can look really nice when fitted with the right tools and not chewed up. This is a BB-7400 with a BB-7700 lockring (the 7400 lockring is black and a bit nasty).
