Beautiful mid to late 19th century boxwood wedge with turned decoration -- one of the nicest examples I've seen. This type of tool was often used by pipefitters and ship's plumbers, as well as carpenters or metalsmiths, for any job requiring the shaping of soft metal. It's a tool that could also be used to drive oakum to seal seams. Excellent patination and wear.

Dimensions: 2.5"x7"
