      Thanks for your help. Do you think it's gold for brass. And thanks again.

      Hi! No problem! Look up chatelaine, when you get a chance. I believe they did use them...it looks like sterling silver to me?
    5. noob, 7 years ago
      Are the edges also sharpened like a blade, or is it just the point that's very sharp?
    6. Jewels Jewels, 7 years ago
      Someone posted one a while back...let me see if I can find it, I believe his name is stwilliam? Brb

      Noob it is very sharp
    9. noob, 7 years ago
      Terrifying! ;)
    10. Jewels Jewels, 7 years ago
      Is it very sharp, yet not very rigid, like you wouldn't be able to tear seams with it or open a letter with it?
    11. noob, 7 years ago
      I was guessing it's for scraping ink off, back when ink wells were still used.
    12. Jewels Jewels, 7 years ago
      Noob, that was one guess by another member on the other post, tubeamp, and he is quite smart from what I've observed, so maybe...thinking if it is more "loose" it would be toothpick, if that makes sense :)

      Persist to think toothpick, but some could consider it could be an antique circumcision tool... (oops, facetious attack again!)
    15. noob, 7 years ago
      What tipped you off?

      The name of that site you posted kyra! Lol, I can't stop laughing! If you look up some other ideas to rule out philena, i.e. blood letting tool, ink eraser, seam ripper...you can see the differences, interesting really!
    21. Jewels Jewels, 7 years ago
      Haha! Lovely tool really! But makes men shutter! :D

      UUh, really weird, puckett Ô..ô lol

    23. Jewels Jewels, 7 years ago
