    Was my great uncles and I think it's a bottle cap opener and I believe from Washington State our home state. Says I "DIG" WASH. On it. Still searching for more about it.

      I live in Washington state as well and I'm trying to figure what it could mean..maybe a clam shovel? That would seem to make sense.

      Or a bi-valve mollusk opening-tool (*shudder*).

      I tried to find a similar one, but a quick search produced this fearsome-looking thing:

      *snip*

      Vintage stainless clam or oyster shucker stamped Made in Italy with the patent number and Hoffritz, NY.

      So, no joy, but it makes me wonder if that other recent mystery item (https://www.collectorsweekly.com/stories/295000-what-is-this-and-what-is-it-used-for) isn't some kind of bi-valve mollusk shucker.
