Tool question

I have this problem where I pick up tools at garage sales, auctions and sometimes someone just says "here do you want this?"
It happens that I went to this garage sale last fall and saw a tool I did not own, it was priced very reasonable, I think it was a dime when I divide it out. ($5.00 for everything you can possibly cram in a paper bag and still carry)

the trouble is I just do not know what it is for, and have not come up with any use for it so far.

does anyone have any idea?

the end is quite sharp and appears to be a hand use tool, not meant to whack with a hammer.

thanks

Yep, Real Bubb, that is officially my guess.

I'd say it's more for upholstery for removing tacks and staples.

Could double for flipping burgers and piercing hot dogs on the grill too.

Used with a lathe, that would create evenly spaced identical grooves/ridges around the stock you turn.

I'm voting leather punch. Looks pretty commonly used to make evenly-spaced holes or slits for lacing or in belts:


1 2 4 6 Prong Diamond Chisel Leather Craft Tools Hole Punch Tool Set DIY-in Sewing Tools & Accessory from Home & Garden on Aliexpress.com | Alibaba Group

The end IS for striking, just not beating the hell out of for woodcarving. Leatherwork only needs a rubber mallet and that striking end is perfect for that.
