Hey there everyone, I made a post about some leatherworking tools I've inherited from my grandfather a while ago, and I was doing some work of my own the other day, and I came across a tool (I think?) and I'm not sure what purpose it serves, or what it does. I think it has to do with shoemaking, since he worked for cole-haan for many years, designing shoes, but I'm not sure. Any help would be greatly appreciated guys.

This is just a guess as I have no idea myself. But the form of the crease looks a lot like the heel of a womans shoe. I could imagine this is some sort of amboss, where the heel is put in that thing and then could be savely hammered or nailed down...
