What is It?

As you can see it looks like a small punch but the tip is blunt. It is made by the General Hardware Mfg. Co.

I have other small layout and measuring tools and such made by them.

Close-up picture, notice the grooves cut into the end area.

It is a scribe for metal.

Hex end is top, lower end is a collet, unscrew, pull out pin to expose sharp point and put back in to use flip back like you have it to store and not poke holes in stuff you don't want to.

crap I was sure that it is a blurry dogs nose :)
Mine has a pocket clip on it and the nib is carbide.

I dont know what it is but I think the dog is wondering why you are messing with his tools! :D

Unscrew the tip. It is probably pointy on the other side...

Yes, it's a scriber. I have one just like it. The collets on them are the weak link. They break easily. Instead of turning the point around, I used to carry mine in a plastic cigar tube to keep from stabbing myself.

A lot of times over the years, I've used darts. The plastic feathers soon break off, though.

Golly, I tried screwing it apart by hand but nothing moved. I figured it was one piece. I suppose I will clamp it with soft jaws and turn it with a wrench.

It might unscrew t the tip end where it has what looks like a separation possibly?
