    I'm familiar with spoke shaves and other furniture shaving tools. However the sharpen part of this tool is the front of the blade, instead of the back. A normal shaving tool has the user pulling the tool towards themselves. This tool requires you push the tool away from yourself. Am I missing something here? Any help would be appreciated.

      I suggest that it is a cutting tool for cutting/chopping vegetables, herbs etc. Similar to an Eskimo "ulu"

      I agree with both posts above. An Eskimo would love you.

      You guys are great. I never would have guessed it was a kitchen tool. Thanks

      You had the right idea just were thinking the workshop rather than the kitchen. Learning is good for you.

      That's what the nuns used to tell me.
