      Hello: Your tool appears to be an old cable splitter knife, made by the "Utica Drop Forge & Tool Company", indicated by the 3 diamonds logo. Of course it is missing it's handle, but otherwise looks to be in good shape. I'm posting a link below with the bell Systems History on it for you.

      Thanks so much!

      I love to study up on the history of old tools and handmade items, the more primitive the better! Thanks for taking the time to respond and for the link to so much information. I do appreciate you.
