WWI Farrier Tool 1916 - Horseshoe Cleaner
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.
