I believe this to be a horseshoe cleaner. During WWI armies were extremely reliant on horsepower for mobility. This was a fact even in WWII far more then most realize. This is a simple blunt iron blade on a wood hilt. The "blade" is slightly curved but with an exaggerated hook on the end. The blade is dated 1916. There is also a maker logo on the ricasso. It is very light only only a few letters are visible on the right side around the image of a horse. Interesting item.

Very nice silver medal; The 1870 Medal of Merit for the City of Rome. The only negative is the blob of wax on the ribbon which could certainly be removed by someone properly motivated. The important point is that the original ribbon is present. ROMA is found on the ring attaching the medal to the suspension ring. Very nice medal.
