It looks like a woodcarver's knife.

I know what it is, but I don't know, if I can describe... I had one myself when I still had my horse...
it's a knife to cut out hooves and it is used by brave and strong horseowners and blacksmiths..
I just used it if something at the rim of the hoof splitted..

I hope you understand waht I wanted to say

Yes it is. Your turn Cara.

It's a hoof knife, used by farriers to trim hooves on horses.

Don't have a clue, Cara, but sure hope that's not what they use during a colonoscopy!!
