    Its a corer of some type- You stick it in, twist a little & the "tit" holds whatever it is to allow retreival-

    if it didn't have the small spike sticking into it, i might have thought an apple corer. i have seen one before, but can't remember where.

    Isn't that an old school tool for cutting plugs from wood similar to this?

    too small to be a cookie cutter.
    not sharp enough to be a leather punch.
    im stumped.

    This is a great thread, Bobski. Keep them coming. I have no idea what the last item you posted is. I think maybe Hossfly may be right.

    very similar, but i believe a bulb auger would be much larger in the coring diameter.

    Hand tool for sure, wood working blade edge, 3 1/2 inches long + the handle, not sure what the punch is in the center for (most likely to keep it straight in a drilled hole), I would say it was for cutting holes in wooden doors for the door handle to go through.

    well, i did what most would do. i got an apple and tried corering it.
    it cored it.
    its an apple corer. the spike acts as a blade and helps pull out the guts when you go all the way thru. it sorta churns the core to make it soft.
    so there ya go...apple corer.
    i looked inside the blade. pat date...4/1910.
