The round flat end almost looks a bit like a pipe tamper to me but not sure.. ::g

Is it a sort of lace bodkin thing or something else like that? It looks very tactile ::g

Here’s a bone one. The hole is in a different place though https://www.rubylane.com/item/398016-69 ... -Awls-Wood

Edit: actually I may have called it the wrong name - it’s a lace bobbin, not a bodkin. Here are some carved boned ones http://artesajordi.blogspot.com/

Or it could be a leather punch? Pointy end to make the hole or design and hit the flat end? I saw one that did both on fleabay.
