    Paid a $1.00 What is it?

    I found this at the thrift store the other day. It was only a dollar so I gambled on it. I haven't been able to identify it yet. It's about 6" long and seems to have been made to fit in the palm of the hand, and driven into something. I suspect it might be mining related. Any help identifying this would be greatly appreciated.

    Although it may be used to splice rope, I think it's a nifty paperweight

    Good weapon too
    Never saw one that looked like that. Every boson's mate in the navy has one.
    When I did yard sales I was dollardan. No yard sales where I am now.
