Not this time "where is this" but "what is this?" I found it in my daughters shed. I have a strange reason to think it may be used by a house painter. Any thoughts?

Hi Gerry.

To me it looks like an old adjustable paint scraper, possibly used on weatherboard houses.
In which state is your daughters shed?

Cheers,

Mike

Mike, your question "In which state is your daughters shed" has to me a double meaning.
To me, her shed is in a state of chaos, unbelievable disorganisation and resembles a typical war zone. She also lives in the state of Queensland.
I can't see how it could be a paint scraper as the bit that fits in the end is a three sided piece that resembles a miniature star picket.
I hope I'm not throwing anyone off with the connection with a house painter.

Mike, I've cleaned up the tool and have reconsidered your idea about being a paint scraper. The removable "blade" actually has a sharp edge along each of the three sides, going right down to the point.
I've also uncovered the embossed printing of the words "BONUN2001" which Mr Google hasn't heard of.
Reggie, I think its way too small for splitting bricks and it doesn't show any evidence of being hit with a hammer.
More photos.

Gerry, If you have a closer look at the brand, it should read BONUM 2001. (not Bonun2001) Made in Germany and used as a three sided scraper that could be used either by hand or on timber on a lathe.

Mr Google has more info.

Cheers,

Mike

A typo Mike. I'd actually written it down as BONUM2001, but couldn't get it right for this blog. Thanks for your input.
