I think Leonardo DiCaprio used that in Ganges of New York. Just Kidding.

I asked my 95 year old Grandma and she No Know. Asked my Pops and mama, both were Farm kids growing up raising pigs, hogs, cattle, horses. They don't know either.
Probably a weapon more so than a working tool. Hopefully some other older salts will chime in.

I found this on http://www.worthpoint.com/worthopedi...shing-62487345

I hope the link works the source was listed as ebay 5/4/2009. It had the description I copied below.

"Vintage Knife This auction is for a really great vintage knife. I believe the knife has a special fishing purpose and it has a really sharp, long spike on the end for pulling in fish. The bottom of the blade has a sharpened edge like a normal knife. Just a neat, unusual knife and very well made. The handle is made of solid wood and on the blade it is etched with the Clyde Cutlery Company 1850 Clyde, Ohio logo. Knife measures about 16" long. Neat piece!"

Definitely a sugar beet knife, I remember seeing one a few years ago whenever I was cropdusting in North Dakota....

Thanks everyone. I searched Internet for 2 days and I'm sure it was in fact a beet knife. The hook was used to till/soften soil so beet was easier to pull up. The blade it's self helped to cut tops off with minimum loss of actual beet.
