tool (1.08MB)
Disclaimer
My sister sent me (via email) a picture of an old tool and asked me to identify it. Below is her description:

This item was found in a tool box that was purchased at a yard sale. The purchaser said he was told the tools were supposedly owned by a retired and long deceased telephone company technician. It is about five inches long and is coated with a red rubber substance on the spoon end inside and out. Do you have any idea what this is?

I would be very grateful if you or someone you know can identify this item for my friend.

thank you

You hold it under telephone wire when repairing it to collect data drips.

Possible that what you call the spoon is the handle of some type of awl.

The tool may have been used to poke holes in wooden poles or planks ?

The rubber ?  is it rubber of old dry wood ?

I thought it might be some sort of awl too but how would you hold it ? There is no "handle". I asked my sister for more pictures but she was only sent the one. It looks sorta like a shoe horn but the red rubber coating on both sides confuses me. Maybe it really wasn't used in the telephone field. I uploaded the image to google but got zip

  No, it's not, at least not one that works (according to a friend of mine).
