Tool ID help Scraper?

Recommended Posts

Hello all

I got this tool (I use it as a scraper) a while ago for free in a bucket of old tools someone was throwing away. 

I believe it is some kind of scraper and works great, but I also need to figure out how to sharpen it. I have tried to sharpen it the same as a card scraper but  no luck. Here are some attached pictures and help is greatly appreciated  

thank you 

john

No clue either, but I'm inclined to agree withTpt as it looks like the side opposite to the sharpened edge has been struck with a hammer during its life.

The lack of a sole leaves me thinking either rough work (splitting like I thought earlier) or soft work (hide scraping.) Just two more cents on reflection.

OP, is there a clue that makes you think that this has anything to do with woodworking? Was the original owner a woodworker?

Don’t sweat it. You had a novel input.
