    The business end looks very well made but the other end looks like it belongs on a file. There is enough irregularity to make it look hand forged. Maple trees? Wine barrels?

      Maybe for screwing into maple trees for sap?

      might look into bung hole auger
    3. Rustfarm Rustfarm, 7 years ago
      It does look like a primitive keg/barrel auger, very nice!

      What do you suppose the handle looked like? I might like to make one (and not alter the original piece.) I am going to start looking for an old piece of hardwood.
