Small Billhook by JOSEPH BEAL & SONS - Grafting Tool

Code: 2072ee

An unusual small billhook by JOSEPH BEAL & SONS of Sheffield.

Marked 'SOLID STEEL' and 'JOSEPH BEAL & SONS SHEFFIELD' with the Boars Head Endure trade mark on the blade.

Although very similar in style to a traditional billhook, this double edged tool has two straight edges rather than one curved and one straight as is normal in the larger billhooks.

Possibly a Gents' billhook or, as has been suggested, a grafting tool?

The lower edge is 65/16 inches long, the upper 21/2 inches.

Fitted with an ashwood handle with steel ferrule.

No previous owner's stamps.

115/8 inches overall length.

An interesting one.
