Here are two items I inherited from my father (Dad was fond of buying any odd tool that struck his fancy; I have lots of weird but generally useful stuff now) along with all his other tools:

The bottom item is about 5-6” wide, with a plastic knob. At first I thought it was some kind of straightedge, but there’s a small burr on the back side of the beveled edge, so perhaps it’s some kind of scraper? No marks on it other than “Japan”.

Nest is the larger knife… but it’s not for cutting, at least, there is no sharp edge. Marked “D. Harrington & Son, Southbridge, MA”. The lower edge is dead straight and flat faced. I’ve been using it as a scraper for debarking branches, but I don’t know what it’s originally intended for.

The third item just happened to end up in the picture but is no mystery; it’s a miniature Pukko knife I made myself about a year ago with a blade from Ragweed Forge and a chestnut and laurel handle… I use that for debarking as well.

shoe knife or book binder knife

This is a “rubber knife”...doesn’t appear to be sharpened either.

Have your say...
