    this is a tool that was used in the slaughter of whale blubber in the 1800's. It is called a flensing tool and was found while on vacation in the state of Maine. It was most likely used on a local whaling vessel.. hotairfan.

      Hotair & Doc, if you come to St. Maarten, be warned not to bring your cats unless on a leash. We have so many stray cats her we named the species. We call them Targets! Just joking with you, - kind of. LOL
