19th century shipbuilding tool which has probably not changed in design for centuries.Has a very sharp wide blade , used as a shaping and smoothing chisel, for fairing planks after trunnels are cut off, and for any other shaping. I personally used it to smooth a rain swollen door frame and can attest it takes skill to use, or it takes off too much wood as I did.This belonged to a Maine shipwright and marine archaeologist, was used in a family boatyard, but was likely handed down from generation to generation along with the skills to use it.. It is very original, very sharp, marked PETER KING; I assume the company that made it. If you recognize this tool you know how useful it is. I would hope this is used again in a place like Mystic Shipyard, not simply added to a static museum collection
