Hi all, I'm an auctioneer in Kentucky, and over the years I've seen and sold a lot of collectible tools from primitive to modern, but this one has me stumped. I've seen them before, but don't know what it's called or its exact purpose. I hope this is the right forum to post in for this, it's edged, and I'm hoping one of the folks here will be able give me a name and purpose for this particular tool. We have a pool going, so hopefully I'll win. lol.
