I bought this from a tool dealer who did not know what it was. It is 9" long. Looks like you could place the blade (about 3" wide) on something and strike it, but there is no sign of having been struck.
It fits a man's hand comfortably, with the hook wrapping around the pinky finger. But holding it in this fashion would make it really awkward to use the spike blade on the end.
It is marked VOO... with the tail of an arrow running through the center of the letters. This is not the complete name, the fourth letter and beyond are rusted/sanded off. Also says made in USA. Overall thickness is 1/8" to 5/32", and the spike opposite the hook flares out to about 1/4" wide.
I have no clue what this is, do you?
