    That looks like an old roofing hatchet for installing cedar shake shingles. You cleave a shingle from the cedar “round” (or custom shave a shingle for fitment) then use the hammer head to drive the nails, it even has a claw for pulling out nails.


    My grandpa had one very similar to that one.

    It is its for trimming the shakes .for fit . splitting from a round was usually done with a froe . but a guy good enough could use these.

    Buy my Tantos and I will consider it. Seriously though if I weren't trying fund firearms right now I would.
