    Can any one help me Identify what this is??

    Appears to be a cutter of some sort.. Thought it was a cigar cutter , but no way.

    something to do with reloading?? The spring pulls back and it snaps shut. The one end is sharp.

    Thanks for any help!!

    Merry Christmas

    Almost looks like it could be a piece from a flintlock rifle. I have no idea what piece though.

    Looks to me like it is designed to split something. The object being split would be about the size of a fingernail.

    Looks like an old 'blood letting tool.'

    Remember there was a time when medical treatment involved letting blood out of the body?? The idea was to get the bad stuff out of you so they bled you. This tool was used to make a small cut to let the blood flow.

    Technical name is a 'spring loaded lancet.'

    Judging from the cutting head and the spring loading it is a Veterinarian tool used to remove cowlick from cows. It is placed between two ribs and released puncturing the skin allowing cowlick air to escape. Most of the ones I have seen had different size heads for large or small animals.

    Pretty sure it is a "bleeder". Thought they were also used for horses.
