Well, That was my best guess.....What made me think that was the bottom of the handle with the Claw , I supposed for prying nails? I also suspect that the oval opening in the handle actually may have a tool purpose in itself, again, possibly for prying. I have a couple of very old "Cats Claw" Pry bars that have a simular looking feature.

I don't know what it is, but my first thought was that it had something to do with harnesses or harness making.
