This is an Indian tool I found years ago at my sister's house in the country. She owns alot of land and has always let me come out and explore. I have done alot of research on tools that were used by ancient Indians, and this looks like one that was used to take the tallow off the back of a deer hide. And I am sure it was used for other animal skins too. It literally has the finger prints of those who have used it embedded in it. My heart skips a beat ever time I pick it up and feel those finger prints. ~nita~
Geez! I look like I could gouge somebodies eye out holding this thing in the air like this!
