    Username Post: An old one....I.D. please?        (Topic#921275)

    Found this knife and can't imagine what this blade was designed to do...

    Seems to be in great shape for it's age. I looked up the number somewhere awhile back and it was from the early 20th century (as I recall), But I'm old... but not this old.

    Thanks for any enlightenment.

    That's a hawk bill pruner. The point has been rounded off from use.
    This blade shape is used for pruning plants and is frequently used as a linoleum knife.
    It is currently back in production.

    Ahh...makes sense now...The "pointy end" has been worn off from use. A linoleum knife would be what it was used for, as I found it on the floor of a empty apartment. I'll wager the floor installers left it. I'll see if someone claims it.
