I bet WV CG can tell ya

Sorry to disappoint you but I have no clue. It appears to me that the block on the front is made to swivel on the handle and it it were to be used in something heat related, I don't think the metal rod would extend through the handle.

Looks like some of them old leather stamping tool; I do a lot of leather work for my sheaths and have some old leather tools that I have and have no clue how to use them. Notice the top part is metal used for a hammper and the handle is wood... I'm willing to bet it's for leather. I'll buy from you and pay for the shipping, I can see where that would come in handy.

I believe the Rev and tm are the closet. A belt mould for a certain size belt. Lat the mould down on the leather, pound it on the flat head, and voila - your belt outline.

My guess is some type of upholstery tool. It obviously is made to be hit with a hammer or some other type instrument due to the metal extending out from the wooden handle. The face is flat and the bottom edge is cut looking like a blade and the top is rolled like it is designed to be tapped. Thus my guess of an upholstery tool.

I have been looking for a long time for the answer to this.

My previous post was just a guess, but I found out what it was and how it is used.

The end is heated until it reaches a soft red glow. Then it is slid across a piece of leather to make it exceptionally smooth, then the leather is dyed to whatever color is desired.

Then holes are punched into the leather, one end is folded over and a buckle is attached to the now shiny leather, and it becomes a belt.

I can't believe my first response was correct...I was only guessing!
Yeah, this story is interesting isn't it? But, alas, it is only a story I made up...I still don't know what it is...

OK, here it is. It is a tool used in bookbinding. As in the old leather bound books? It is used for the spine of the book, to give definition to between the spine and the front/back covers.

Sure, it is just another guess...
