I agree with the others that said rule joint. The interesting thing about it is that the flat metal face would ride along a flat surface (like the benchtop) and cut the joint on a board also laid flat on the workbench. That way it assures that the resulting joint (and one cut by its mate wherever that is) would end up flat when fit together.
