Topic tags/keywords: question

Greetings All, This is my first post. I’d like to know what this little tool is used for. The pictures show the razor blade attached to the block, which has grooves in the bottom. It must fit over the work piece and be pushed forward to shave the tops off of something. The blade doesn’t reach down far enough to work like a plane would. Does anyone recognize this or is it just a one off that was built for a task long forgotten?
views of front, back and side:

There have been several of us trying to figure it out over on another tool forum with no luck. I though someone here might have an idea. Thanks, kr.
