Looks like homemade hollowing tool for small turnings like ornaments & acorns. Little confuse by shape of tip, looks like would catch a lot. Made small hollowing tools from allen wrenches tips had more round shape for easy scraping. Only used them to scrap away material under the hole or lip to make room for my spindle gouge.

Lot of info on how to turn ornaments and making homemade tools on the web.

Broke down and bought Sorby ¼” three piece unhandled HSS scraper set many years ago and still use them.

Looking at CFrye’s captive ring link makes more sense to me for that purpose
