A friend's grandmother gave me this and I have no idea what it is!
Any ideas?



Thanks
Caleb

It might be an antique punch rug hooking tool.  Does it have a manufacturer's name on it?

If it's large-ish I agree with the rug punch theories.  If it's smaller it might be a Russian punch needle.  Same idea, but used to make tapestries for bags, wall hangings and other upholstery projects.

I found this site...
http://www.punchneedlemarketplace.com/
but didn't see that one in their list...

Those answers were better than my guess of a primitive seam ripper.
