    Hello, I have been trying to figure out what this is for a while now. Does anyone know what this is? The curved piece at the end, and the sides, are sharp. The back edge of the flat part, (what I am guessing is the bottom), is also sharp. It is 21-1/2" long, and the open area with the sharp sides measures approx. 2" x 5-1/2". Stay safe everyone, please!! Regards, Lou

      My first thought was a forge scraper. The flat to scrape the pan and the rounded end to scrape the grates.

      Hello, Roycroft. So far, sod cutter makes the most sense, but I could not find a match.I had thought agricultural/horticulture tool when I first saw it, but again, no way to verify. Regards, Lou
