    This is a seldom seen, antique, open tiling spade for digging trenches in clay type soils. When digging in clay it is like cutting cheese with a knife, the deeper you go the harder it is to push because the cheese sticks to the knife that is why cheese cutters are made out of wire. This tiling tool uses the same principle of having less surface area for the clay to stick to. These were blacksmith made and many ended up broken from abuse.
