If you've had it for years - was uPVC around when it was made? The one in the evil bay picture looked flexible. This one does not.

I would like to suggest an alternative reason for that knife - the original one - before the uPVC guys found that the shape was good for their task as well - just guessing mind.....

A hedge layer's / fencing hook (used like a billhook on one side, and a chopper on the other) used by those who make the split hazel panels??

Another possibility could be basketry/willow work?

Probably a derivative of a halberd type weapon which dates from about the 12th century.

The spade gives it away. It's a knife used for cutting the cards.

I know this type of knife as a french pattern saddlers knife. It is made by Solingen. The different edges are used to skive (thin) leather or cut through heavy hide.

Agree with Andrew, Its a traditional Leather worker's knife, various sharpened edges for saddler's & leather workers cutting. Knives very similar to this are still made, in Sheffield today.

All the hedge layers, please note - you have been using the WRONG TOOL all these years! :)

It looks like it's one of those all-singing all-dancing tools that was made from a war weapon eons ago and adapted in multiple areas of work to do a job of work - like the best of them!
