You'll notice from the picture that our object is apparently NOT sharpened on the hook back section.   My guess is that it started out much like this one;

and that the curve (belly) was sharpened away over time (much like many old very heavily used and sharpened knives).   I thought about cutting away the curved part of this one but don't have the ideal image software so that it showed straight from one point to the other...you'll see that it's virtually identical to our guest.

The most compelling answer yet, now we have to go the extra mile, contact a seasoned chip carver, and get their opinion, or several chip carvers to get a general consensus, and/or a website of collectible chip carving tools etc etc. Verifiable references win the grand prize!

 

I Have been trying to find more info on it and have a few emails out on it.  I do have this reply from a carving forum.  Would it be enough?

 

Forum Reply:  I have one from the now defunct AMT company. It has been surprisingly useful.

 

More pictures of similar tools.

I believe this is a variation of a leather embossing iron. Primarily used for saddle makers

Over-thinking this a bit?:unsure::rolleyes:

 

Nowadays, you use a razorblade holder to trim the edges of veneers where they overlap at a corner.....that is all this tool does.   Just run it along an edge, to trim the excess veneer off.    Was made before them Plastic holder thingys came out.:ph34r:   Sharp ends allowed you to reach right into a corner, or..follow a curved edge.  Simple...

I put out five emails to carvers and chip carvers.  Only got one reply which is the one I already listed.

I asked if he could send me a picture and he did.  I had listed the suspect from this thread and the newer ones I found and it turns out to be this.  So his is evidently newer.

I also thought it may be a trimming tool for wallpaper hangers but could find no evidence of that either.  Here is as close as I came in that venue.

No successful answer was given. The research and verification is lacking.

We will go to a draw for an MWTCA Membership.

Who We Are

Operation Ward 57 Challenge Coin Display Project

We are a woodworking community with an emphasis on sharing and learning the skilled craft of woodworking and all of its related disciplines. Our community is open to everyone who wishes to join us. We support our American veterans and active duty, being a veteran is not a prerequisite to join. Join us now!

Objective

Air Force Command Center Plaque

Of course just like most online woodworking communities we are centralized in the arts, crafts, and trades that are woodworking. But, we have another focus in our Patriot Woodworker community, we are the only woodworking community that was founded on our care and concern for our disabled veterans.

Volunteer

Patriot Woodworker Volunteers

The Patriot Woodworkers are an all volunteer community, from the staff and hosts who run our online woodworking community to the members who frequent our forums, you'll find volunteers in all of us. We are not on a payroll, unless you consider the spiritual rewards gained from volunteering, as compensation.

Education

Logging

One of the many projects we are working on is a wiki for our online community. A wiki is a great way for woodworkers and enthusiasts to share their knowledge to others, and to impart their knowledge for others to learn from, and utilize as well for their own benefit. We hope you'll consider being a wiki contributor.
