That is sounding miore and more like a broom makers “hammer”. Google and see
what you find.

> My inquiry stemmed from a tool I saw in a barn (stacked full of tools freshly
orphaned, but that’s another ongoing story)
> The tool was quite thick, maybe even 1/2in. It had a bench froe configuration,
handle in line with the “blade”.
> And what a blade it was. 1/2in thick, maybe 2.5in wide, one side double
bevelled (NOT a bezel, remember those days??) all the way down, and the other
side double bevelled 3/4 of the way down the 6in blade, but the final 1 1/2in
was completely un-bevelled, just squared off.
> I assume *that* part at the end was where hammering was done. Neither edge
particularly sharp. Perhaps even “dull as a froe”.
> Wish I had a picture, but alas, my mind was swimming with thoughts of how all
of these tools were going to get sold. Nobody knows yet!
