Item D6 - Scraper Shave.  Bone Sole. 

This classic English shaped scraper shave appears to be beech, with a dark stain and good age.  The down-turned end of one arm has the proper hang hole.  It has a 13 inch wing span.  The blade is probably derived from a saw blade, and is 2 inches wide.  The appeal of the tool is greatly enhanced by a bone sole that is attached with two ebony pins.  The bone could be whale bone, and the tool could have been made by a whale man in order to scrape smooth Sperm whale teeth before engraving them.  Easily Good+
