Not ice, not pointy enough.

See if it has Starrett written on it somewhere.

5th one on this page.

It does say Starrett on it. Cool. Just need a wood lathe now.

Thanks for the quick identifier everyone

My Gramps was a pretty good craftsman. Unfortunately when he passed, most of his tools went to my cousin who sold them because he didn't want them. I would have gladly kept and used them. Oh well. Is what it is. I got a few cool things of his. An old beast of a rolling toolbox, an old Stanley hand plane and some old hand saws. A few various things like screw drivers. I like using old tools especially knowing my Gramps used them.
