      The blade's what, about 6" long at least? It looks like a more modern
      last carving knife (assuming you put a long handle on the pointy end
      and attach it to a base by a metal loop through the hole in the end of
      the blade. Unfortunately my copy of Salaman has temporarily gone
      astray -- I assume saddlers may use a similar thing for shaping trees.
