What's this????

Found this today at a Sally Anne thrift store. I figured it out eventually with help of an etching that was on one side of the blade. It may be an easy one for you but it is a cool little tool none the less...

Some kind of wedger? Like a melon baller only for making fancy canteloupe bowls?

I'd have to guess it's for removing citrus sections.

You could be right about the fruit knife but looking at this, I would think otherwise.

Ok I'll bite..........what would this tool have to do with a chicken???? Unless it is a specialty tool for a backbone I am in the cheese knife camp.

Something to do with deviled eggs???

Funny, though, I've seen this tool before but I can't remember when or where.
