It's funny you mentioned hide scraper. I was thinking it could be used for that. As a jeweler I use Alum to dissolve steel drill bits that break off in gold or silver. It is also used in old pickling recipes to keep them crisp. I just ordered Alum on Amazon last week and found out it is also used in hide tanning. So Amazon suggested I might also like to purchase hide scrapers. But, the one I saw had a straight blade.

I found this one @ChuckJ.

Could be different styles perhaps, a curved style as is our item? Our featured specimen has the exact same serrated edge as the one pictured here.

@John Morris  Would this be proof enough?  Modern day version I assume.

@John Morris  I got a reply from Joe at PCS Outdoors.  They are the tool supplier for the tool in my above post.  Here is his reply.

 

Mr. Henkele: 

I would have to agree with you.  You've already looked up item 671-7102 ( I was going to send a reference to it but you found it already).  I can see where some might think it's for plastering or spreading tile mastic, but I'm leaning towards the fleshing tool idea.  One for the "rustic" appearance of the tool.  Two, fleshing tools are made to use by drawing it towards yourself with the handle (In my opinion, the handle on this would get in the way of properly spreading plaster/mastic unless you were pushing it).  I hope this helps.

I want to thank Tina Heisner and Joe from PCS Outdoors.  They took the time to consider and answer my questions.  PCS out doors must be a great company to deal with having employees who are willing to go the distance to answer emails like these two.

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.
