It's a tool used to finish the ends of wooden spokes. The kind that they used on old wagons.

Re: Mystery Tool Week 26

My guess is that it is an early gutting knife.The top portion prevents over penetration while the bottom portion is the actual knife blade for slitting the hide. It appears to be sharpened on the inside edge. You are finding some tough ones to figure out!!

Re: Mystery Tool Week 25

This one is a real puzzler. The closest thing that I can think of is
that it is a tool to remove the caps/bungs off barrel openings.
I will be watching this thread all week to see what others guess.

Re: Mystery Tool Week 23

I think OOPS and RUSS beat me to it. It is an adze designed to remove material from
the inside of a concave surface. Probably a barrel.

Re: Add on for Week 22

This is a tool for cutting a taper on the end of a dowel/stick.
Or it could be a tool like a cartridge case trimmer.
Either way the stock(or cartridge) is inserted from the left,
and the handle is turned to cut(trim) it.
