I looked at this for a long time because something didn’t look right about it. The close up picture of the tip makes it appear to be some sort of beveled edge socket chisel, but if you look at it long enough, I think it is actually a V shaped corner chisel/bruzz as advertised. Just a really bad photo/angle of that tip!

OK, I looked at it quite a while and decided it have a solid point at 60 degrees. Definitely a bad photo angle:-))

It’s a long corner chisel used by Wheelwrights and part of a ships carpenters kit. They used to use them for chasing mortises for ship’s wheel spkes and also for wagon wheels.
I remeber seeing them way back when I was an apprenctice at an engineering company (almost 50 years ago)which had a woodshop that specialised in ships carpentry.

Looks like a 90° corner chisel with some damage to one side of it. Or maybe just the inside is damaged a bit. A little hard to tell.
