I once had a local woman try to sell me a 'tobacco cutter' made in
Massachusetts clearly labelled as a 'Lion Miter Trimmer'. She had owned it for
many years, and displayed it in her restaurant; Jules Mae's of Georgetown WA,
along with other doodads from the woods.
I know I'm not the only one who told her 'It's not for tobacco.'
Point is, I've been watching people smoke, sniff and chew for 60 years or so,
and I never saw anyone use one of these to cut tobacco. Them as couldn't bite
off a chew always used a pocketknife, as I recall.
Nice knife, though, whatever its intended use.
and best, to all galoots everywhere-gam in OlyWA

So I was near the store where I saw the tobacco cutter and it was still
there. Grabbed it and would like to report the knife part makes a
passable light duty bench froe. My chisels are happy.
