I have no idea what the name of this tool is, or its purpose. I found it at a recycling depot and have no information or back-story about it.
The handle is wood, slightly tapered, about 1/2" at it's widest and 3" long.
The trowel-like part is solid brass; 1/16" thick, 4.5" long, 1.5" on the narrowest side, and tapers to a very sharp point.
It looks well-used and I imagine it must be used for some purpose other than ornamental, but I'm completely perplexed! Maybe something specific to a craft of some sort?
