This is a good used late 1800's vintage cast iron, pistol shaped, and graduated 4" steel slitting tool or gauge, generally designed for cutting strips of leather, but may have other uses as well. It comes complete with a good sharp hardened steel cutter and adjustable width feature that has a graduated scale in inches on it. The tool is marked on the top of the pistol shaped section "PAT. AUG. 1.76 REISSUED", and also marked on the graduated beam "OSBORNE NEWARD N.J.". The Patent date is 1876 reissued July 17, 1877 on this design. The slide bar has the capacity from 1/4"4" widthes, and can hold a cutter up to 1/4 x 3/4". The pistol shaped handle appears to have been sanded smooth and polished in some areas. All in good condition with no cracks or damage, the cutter may is sharp, and the set screws are in useable shape, the one on the pistol is most likely a newer replacement. A good clean vintage leather working tool!
