    One thing about having to stay home is all the time we have to go through stuff! LOL My Mother-in-Law was an antiquer, and saved everything. We're going through boxes, and finding all kinds of cool stuff. 99.9% of it we know what it is. But.....sometimes we come across that odd item that we're stumped on.

    This has a wooden handle, and the sharp part can either be retracted into the metal part, or pushed out. There are measuring lines. I'm THINKING maybe a leather punch, or belt punch of some type? The size of the hole would be dependent on how far out you push it?

    It measures 4 1/2 in. The point measures 1 inch when fully extended.

    Thanks!
