The bottom tip is actually blunt.

Tis a side rabbet to be sure. They came in left and right handed pairs.I have a
pair and find them more fussy than the modern metal versions, but much more
comfortable to use.

As others have said, nice side rabbet plane. I have a harlequin pair
awaiting tuneup and usage.

Yours (per DAT) is probably made by John Gibson, Albany NY, working from
1823 - 1852.  He usually put J. Gibson. / Albany, but yours may not have
had enough real estate.
