with apologies to Ogden Nash...
Google at least found what it looks like with the blade:https://loonlaketoolworks.com/products/vintage-simons-gull-wing-belt-shave-nickel-platedProbably used for skiving (thinning) leather in preparation for sewing. Would be cool to have a complete one.
OK, Thanks! Simons is the manufacturer... I'll add the image of the complete tool. The blobby welds as retainer spoil the look, don't you think?
No doubt they could have done a better job cleaning up the casting. For hobbyist use on leather though it's probably just fine, and a case of "you get what you pay for."
