Wrought Iron Whaling Tool 18th century

Wrought iron whaling tool dating from the 18th century, it was in the house I bought 20 years ago and there are two labels with hand-forged writing and over 100 years old.

A series of tools were used to cut up the whale, with a wide range of knives, scrapers and cutters to speed up the process.

Whale oil was an extremely useful substance, used in the lamps that lit early homes, in the manufacture of soaps and even by watchmakers as a lubricant.

Most of the tools I've seen on the internet are just iron heads attached to a wooden pole.

This tool is hand-forged from a single piece of iron with a rounded spear point.

The knife is 22 inches (56 cm) long.

I've included a large square antique nail about 5 inches (13 cm) long for hanging.

This is a genuine hand-forged antique.
