Description
Long wooden tool, possibly a snath or scythe handle, with a short 5" handle near the center. One end has a little metal band near the tip, and another about 1/2 way to the handle. The metal band near the handle is also attaching a small piece of wood. The other end is shaped - rounded and narrow near the tip and thicker and curved closer to the handle. There is also a 15.5" long x 4" wide wedge shaped piece sticking out to the side near the shaped edge. Both the wedge and the wooden handle are attached with wooden dowels.
