What is this tool?

Another mystery tool, maybe someone here recognizes it and can tell me what it does...

I saw one of those on eBay the there day. Seller didn't know what it was either. Think they had it listed under cobbler's tools.

I have seen a few on Ebay also, and just couldn't figure out what the heck they were for.  I'm going with chainstitching until I learn otherwise!

Is that a real thing? Haha

Ok I looked it up. Didn't sound like a serious answer. Bruce really does know everything.

By George, I believe we have a winner.  Never found Bluenose, but found rug hooking - seems like this would do the trick!
