Same here, and me neither. But I was thinking this "tobacco knife" was for
use a bit further upstream, as in maybe part of the tobacco product
manufacturing process (e.g., cutting the leaves to shape for rolling
cigars, etc.).

Huge caveat here: I know nothing of consequence about "the tobacco product
manufacturing process"! I just thought this tool was maybe for something in
that realm, as opposed to something for the end user.

Anyway, I still want one!

Take care, all of you,
