December 2013 Mystery Tool C
Do you recognize this tool?
This mystery farm tool seems to be missing a wooden handle at the bottom and maybe a blade. There is a slot through the middle and the small barrel on the right has a square hole through it, so maybe a blade with a square tang like a file. There is no setscrew or other clamp. It is marked “Viktor Canada Pat’d 1938.”
