Found this old tool in my grandfather's garage. Very similar to a miner's pick axe or a masonry tool. What has stumped is that on one end it has a hammer like tip with the brand or mark "R8" stamped into it. Looks like it would leave the symbol "R8" if it struck certain materials or was heated like a branding iron. Or maybe just a maker's mark? Anyone know?
